Alice Cake

20181116_195635.jpgWho was Alice, and why was there a cake named for her?  We may never know, but the previous owner of Maud C. Cook’s Encyclopedia for the Home, 1902 saw fit to write out the recipe and keep it between the pages.  It sounds like a nice vanilla cake, but with very sketchy instructions, you’d better be a confident cook to try it!

  • teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
