I am looking for a recipe called "monday's washday pound cake" that was on a Clabber Girl baking powder can many years ago. I have contacted Clabber Girl, but they say they have been unable to locate it or won't call me back. This was a recipe my grandmother (now deceased) made back in the 50's and 60's. Please can anyone help. It really is a good pound cake with a flaky-like top.
I did a google search for "washday cake" and found several recipes, so you might want to give google a try. Make sure you put it in quotes, as I did. If you do find what you're looking for, please post the recipe here so I can try it too.
I found a website which lists a Clabber Girl Cook book published in 1954. The book is for sale.
If it means a lot to you, you might want to
check it out. I might even have a copy of that
Pound Cake recipe around here somewhere, but have been unable to find it. I believe it's the same
recipe that Jeff Smith (Frugal Gourmet) called
the "Colonial Pound Cake" which is about the
most simple pound cake recipe I've ever made.
Here's that Website address for the cookbook.
If you're interested in having the Colonial Pound Cake recipe, just email me and let me know. It is
certainly simple enough to be one for the old
wash days that I remember.
All the best,
