( I asked Florence why there was no soda or baking powder and she said that she had used the recipe many times and it worked fine just as it is. I didn't want you to think I just overlooked it" Written on recipe by Mary Elizabeth Finley

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a recipe that Mother (Finley) wrote out for me. It is Florence's recipe. It is very good. I had written Mother when I was first married and away for Christmas. We always had so may good foods at Christmas time at home. All were homemade as we did not have the convenient mixes that are available now. Mother and Florence made a lot of cakes and candies ahead and served them to family and friends when they stopped by to visit.
