Excerpt

A Little Book for a Little Cook was originally published by Pillsbury in 1905. This new reproduction has all of the recipes from the original softcover edition, but is being reissued with the modern reader in mind. The collector will note some small departures from the original book, but the little cook will no doubt find what is here to be fun to cook, delicious, and warmly nostalgic.

For best results, we recommend the following recipe changes when preparing these old-fashioned recipes. When using Pillsbury BEST Flour, there is no need to sift the flour. Just lightly spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level it off. When combining the flour with other dry ingredients, stir the ingredients together with a fork.

Bread: Soak 1 (.6 oz.) cake compressed yeast or 1 pkg. active dry yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in 2 tablespoons lukewarm (105-110F.) water for 2 minutes. Knead dough 5 to 10 minutes. Let dough rise in warm place until it is almost double in size. Grease, bottom only, 84 or 95-inch loaf pan. Bake at 375F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown.

Biscuits: Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 425F. for 9 to 11 minutes.

Ginger Bread: Bake in a greased 13x9-inch pan at 350F. for 23 to 27 minutes.

Sponge Cake: Bake

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
