iWhen You 
Make Cake 







swans down 

Nothing gives such wonderful results 
in home made cake as Swans Down 
Cake Flour! Try it in any good recipe. 
You can have lighter, whiter, finer, 
better cake — pie crust — pastry, just as 
you long to have it. 

Swans Down costs only a few cents for 

each cake made and yet it saves all the 

costly waste of cake disappointments. 

Swans Down has been the grocers' choice 
for 25 years.

1 2 cupful butter, or substitute 3 teaspoonfuls baking powder 

1 cupful sugar Vi teaspoonful salt 

2 3 cupful milk 1 teaspoonful vanilla 
2 cupfuls SWANS DOWN CAKE FLOUR 3 egg whites 

Cream butter, gradually add sugar, creaming mixture well. Sift flour once, measure, add 
baking powder and salt and sift three times. Add the flour and milk alternately to the creamed 
butter and sugar, beating batter hard between each addition of flour and milk. Add vanilla 
extract. Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites and bake in a loaf or two layers in a moderate 
oven. Ice as desired. 

Before attempting to make any cakes in this book, read this article. It may prevent a cake 
failure, thereby saving the waste of ingredients. These are the four most important steps 
in cake-making, and if followed carefully will help you to make really, good cake. 


A good cake cannot be made with poor ingredients. For the best results choose only the 
purest materials obtainable. Cake is a food that contains the most nutritive elements, such 
as eggs, butter, milk, sugar, flour, etc. Cake is more delicate than bread and needs a more 
delicate flour. This flour is Swans Down Cake Flour, soft, white, and velvety, made especially 
for cake and pastry making. Swans Down costs but a few cents more per cake and yet it 
insures against disappointment and costly cake failures. Lighter, whiter, finer, better cakes 
if you use Swans Down. 


All ingredients called for in any good recipe must be accurately mixed and all measure- 
ments should be level. This is necessary in order to obtain the same results in each baking. 
The standard one-half pint measuring cup should be used and the recipe followed exactly. 


It is necessary in successful cake making that all ingredients be perfectly measured and 
utensils and cake tins be ready before beginning to mix the cake. Always beat the shortening 
to a cream before adding any sugar. Add sugar gradually, creaming the mixture meanwhile. 
Add a little sifted Swans Down Cake Flour, with baking powder added, then a little milk and 
so on alternately until all the flour and milk are used, beat the batter, never stirring, after each 
addition of flour and milk. Add flavoring. lhe stiffly-beaten egg-whites should be next 
folded in very carefully if recipe calls for same. Work quickly, but carefully, in mixing 
your cake. 


The heat of oven for cake making is of very great importance. There are some general 
guides for temperature which may be profitably observed. All thin layer, small cakes and 
cookies require a hot oven (350-400°F). Thick layer and cakes baked in a loaf require a mo- 
derate oven (325-375°F) while sponge cakes and angel cakes require a slow oven (250-300°F). 
Fruit cakes require even a slower oven (200-250°F). 

The helpful hints above are taken from "Cake Secrets," an authoritative booklet on cake 
making by Janet McKenzie Hill, editor of American Cookery Magazine. You are welcome 
to a copy full of original recipes, directions, illustrations — for 10c sent to Igleheart Brothers, 
Evansville, Indiana, Department C. I. Best grocers everywhere have Swans Down Cake 
Flour. If you cannot get it, write us. Use it in your cake and pastry making. 

Always use Swans Down Cake Flour in all cake recipes given injhis book and elsewhere. 
It insures lighter, whiter, finer cakes.

MAKES the best bran muffiins you ever ate — 
and they help keep you healthy 

Kellogg 's Bran is not only ready to eat — a brand- 
new cereal food made of bran — but because of its 
unusual goodness and choice flavor it is away ahead 
of ordinary brans for making 
bread, muffins, gems, pancakes, 

Muffins made with Kellogg's Bran 
— whether you use your own recipe 
or follow the one on the package — 
are not only light and tempting, but 
they have a rich, palatable taste. This 
is because we keep the nutlike flavor 
in the bran as we krumble it, and 
bring out a sweet, pleasing flavor 

Millions of people have welcomed 
Kellogg's Bran. For them it makes a 
pleasure instead* of a distasteful task 
of eating bran in some form every day 
to avoid constipation. 

CAUTION— Be sure to get the 
genuine. Ask your grocer for Kel- 
logg's Bran. Bemember the name 
KELLOGG'S. You only get the wax- 
tite package bearing the signature of 

Kellogg' s Bran 
, Muffins 

Cream 34 c. sugar, 
and shortening size 
of an egg, together. 
Add to this one egg, 
1 c. sour milk (or 
sweet milk), 1 c. 
Kellogg's Bran, \]/i 
c. flour, 1 level tsp. 
soda (or 2 tsp. bak- 
ing powder if sweet 
milk is used), Pinch 
Salt. Mix well. 

This will make 
twelve large deli- 
cious muffins. 




"Ceres presents a plate of vermicelli; 

For love must be sustained like flesh and blood; 
While Bacchus pours out wine, or hands a jelly; 
Eggs, oysters, too, are amatory food." 

Stock For Soups 

Stock for soups is made from meat or bones, or of 
cooked joints of meat (omitting the fat — this would 
give a tallowy flavor to the soup), to which may be 
added chicken, turkey, beef, or mutton bones, well broken 
up. Put all this in cold water without salt; let it come 
slowly to boiling point, then skim well; set it back and 
let it simmer gently for six hours, until the meat is in 
shreds. Rapid boiling hardens the fiber of the meat, and 
the savory flavor escapes with the steam. Add a little 
pepper and salt, strain into a stone jar, let it cool, and 
remove all the grease. This stock will keep for many 
days in cold weather, and from it can be made all the 
various kinds of soups. 

White Soup 

A knuckle of veal, 2 turnips, 1 carrot, 2 tablespoons of 
whole pepper, 2 tablespoons of ground rice or farina. 
Boil and strain through a sieve. Beat the yolks of three

cream. Do not boil the eggs and cream, but put them 
in a tureen and stir as you pour the soup upon them. 

Mrs. Anna Scott. 

Oyster Soup 

Drain 1 can of oysters. Boil the liquor and 1 pint of 
water; skim well. Season with butter, pepper, and salt.

Miss Cora C. Leon. 

Tomato Soup 

One quart canned tomatoes, 2 heaping tablespoons of

water. Let tomatoes and water come to a boil. Rub 
flour, butter, and a little tomato juice together, stir into 
boiling mixture. Boil 15 minutes. Strain through a sieve 
and serve with dice of toasted bread. 

Mrs. Walter Clark. 

Tomato Soup 

One quart of tomatoes, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 quart of hot 
water, 1 teaspoon sugar, pepper to taste, 4 cloves, 1 table- 
spoon of butter, 1 tablespoon chopped onion, 1 tablespoon

salt and pepper to tomatoes and boil in a porcelain kettle. 
Put the butter in a saucepan and when it bubbles, put in 
the onion and parsley. Fry five minutes, being careful

ment. Canned peas may be used if desired.

Suggestions For Baking Meat or Tame Fowl 

Do not season, or put water in the dripper for 30 min- 
utes, after placing in a very hot oven. Then season well, 
add hot water, and bake slowly, basting often. Meats 
baked in this manner retain all their juices, instead of 
being drawn out by steam and salt. 

Mrs. B. T. Skinner. 

Yorkshire Pudding 


Four eggs beaten very light, a pinch of salt, 12 heaping 
tablespoons of flour, 1 pint of milk; beat part of the flour 
with the eggs, and add the rest of the flour and milk 
gradually. Bake with the meat three quarters of an hour 
before the roast is done. May be baked without meat by 
putting 2 or 3 tablespoons of the drippings from the meat 
in a pan, and when hot pour in the batter, basting oc- 
casionally. Cut in squares and serve on the platter with 
the roast. 

Beefsteak Smothered in Onions 

Grease a hot spider with butter or the suet from the 
meat, and fry the steak until half done; then cover very 
thickly with sliced onion, season very well with butter, 
pepper and salt, and put a little water in the spider to 
prevent burning; cover closely and set where they will 


cook more moderately. If not cooking fast enough, turn 
the meat so the onions will come to the bottom. Serve 
hot, with the onions on top the steak. 

Mrs. N. A. Osgood. 

Sirloin Steak With Oyster Sauce 

Let your oysters fry a few minutes in butter, pepper, 
salt, a little flour, and the juice of half a lemon, with 
enough water to make the quantity of sauce desired. Stir 
till the oysters are done. Serve with broiled steak.

little salt in whites of eggs. Cream butter and sugar 
thoroughly. Sift flour twice, then measure and sift 
three times. Alternate milk and flour to which baking 
powder has been added. Beat mixture hard for five 
minutes. Fold in beaten whites and bake in two layers 
in a very slow oven. The success of this cake is in the 
thorough beating before the whites are added and in 
baking it very slowly. Light the oven just before put- 
ting in the cake and turn the burners down half way.

boiled frosting and use either fresh cocoanut or Baker's 
fresh grated cocoanut that comes in cans.

moment it begins to bubble. By this time the sugar 
should be too hot for the finger to bear. Should it melt 
around the edges, do not be alarmed; the burnt part 
can be easily taken out. Throw the sugar into the boil-

White Fondant 

Two and one-half pounds sugar, If cups hot water, 
\ teaspoon cream of tartar. Put ingredients into a

to boiling point. Boil without stirring until, when 
tried in cold water, a soft ball may be formed that will 
just keep in shape. After a few minutes' boiling sugar 
will adhere to sides of kettle. This should be washed 
off with the hand first dipped in cold water. Have a 
pan of cold water near at hand, dip hand in cold water, 
then quickly wash off a small part of the sugar with 
tips of fingers, and repeat until all sugar adhering to 
side of sauce pan is removed. If this is done quickly 
there is no danger of burning the fingers. Pour slowly 
on a slightly oiled marble slab or platter. Let stand a 
few minutes to cool, but not long enough to become hard 
around the edge. Scrape fondant with chopping knife 
to one end of marble, and work with a wooden spatula 
or spoon until white and creamy. It will quickly change 
from this consistency and begin to lump, when it should 
be kneaded with the hands until perfectly smooth. 

Put into a bowl, cover with oiled paper to exclude 
air, that a crust may not form on top, and let stand

Read The Good Health 

IT was the pioneer magazine in teaching biologic living, and 
it stands alone. When the magazine (under another name) 
was established in 1866, the Editors adopted a policy 
which has been maintained at the same high standard 
throughout the years. 

When you select a magazine, you want one that is worth 
while. The majority of thinking people will at once admit that 
health is the most important and valuable of a man's assets. 
Without it, one is crippled in every line of endeavor. GOOD 
HEALTH tells you how to keep well. 

There is no periodical in the world that contains such a 
wealth of general health information, dietetics and all that 
pertains to the art and science of health and longevity, as the 
GOOD HEALTH magazine. John Harvey Kellogg, M. D., 
LL. D., is'the Editor-in-chief. Dr. [Kellogg' s work as the 
builder and medical chief of the renowned Battle Creek San- 
itarium is well known. His forceful editorials, as well as 
other articles in GOOD HEALTH, are widely copied and 
commented upon in journals throughout the country.
