One of my favorite vintage cookbooks to collect, are the Swans Down Flour cookbooks.
I have a handful of them in my cabinet. And they are filled with great vintage recipes.
Now Swans Down has been making cake flour since 1894. And through the years... they gave out aluminum measuring cups in bags of flour. Which of course I have one that I use!
They were wonderful made, measuring cups with a handle. So they have survived over the decades. And the one I have here is a one cuper...
Of course the bigger one is a two cuper. Sadly, it is a generic aluminum measuring cups. But it gets used all the same. :)
Swans Down did make cake mixes. But I have not ever seen any of them for sale.
But I do purchase their normal cake flour here locally.
Now lets take a peek a few of their vintage advertisements.
I wish flour makers would go back to having these type of advertisements, for their product. Great colorful images... with a recipe included!
Now one last peek at my measuring cups....
Lets leave with one more recipe!
Dang it... now I want some cake!
