Fridays with Edna and Eva - War Cake

I am going to start sharing a recipe from my grandmother's recipe box each Friday. There are also recipes mixed in from my great-grandmother. Many of these are from the 40's and 50's.  I will just post the recipe cards....interpret as you see fit :)

....and if you try any...please share!

  1. Hello,
    What a wonderful idea, I love looking at old recipes and seeing what went in or in this case didn't - eggs with the war on! What a beautiful thing to share, thank you.

  2. That looks like my Nan's writing - I have a few of her old recipes that I have kept & make from time to time.
    Ps we are almost the same age - I am 47 in March - I still feel like I'm 25 though!

  3. I love how every generation has their own signature penmanship style. That card looks just like one of my grandmother's!
    Great idea :)

    1. I agree about the penmanship! I am obsessed with French cursive!
