HINTS ON CAKE MAKING. 

Do not have your oven too hot when you put your cake 
in. 

Keep the iire low until the cake raises, then increase the 
heat and bake. 

If the cake comes up high in the center, it is because 
the oven was too hot at first. 

It does not hurt to stir the batter both ways. 

If a cake is coarse grained it is usually caused by the 
lack of creaming butter and sugar sufficiently. This is very 
important. 

When the butter is hard, if you warm part of the sugar 
before adding to the butter, it will be much easier creamed. 
Add your sugar slowly, do not put it all in at once. When it 
creams to6 slowly a tablespoon of warm water helps it very 
much. 

In making a loaf cake it is better to put the whites of 
eggs in before the flour; in a layer cake, after. 

Any cake with shortening in it can be beaten after the 
flour and baking powder are added. 

In a sponge cake, after the flour is in, the less you stir 
it, the better. 

Many fail in making angel cake because they are not 
careful enough when the flour is added. It should be folded 
in. Stirring or beating after it is added breaks the air bub- 
bles ; thins the batter and makes the cake tough and heavy. 
The flour should he sifted 5 times before measuring. Use 
pastry flour. 

When beating the whites of eggs with a fork, much 
better results will be obtained if an oval dish is used instead 
of a round one.

QUICK ICING. 

1 tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon lemon juice 

3 tablespoons orange juice

Mrs. M. Yerkes. 

CARAMEL FOR FLAVORING. 

Put any amount of sugar desired in a saucepan ; stir over 
fire until sugar dissolves and turns brown. Now add hot 
water equal in quantity to the sugar ; this hardens the sugar, 
but let the mixture simmer about 15 minutes and the sugar 
dissolve again and a clear syrup is formed. If the syrup be 
desired thick for flavoring a mousse or seasofiing sauces, it 
may be allowed to simmer 3^2 an hour or more. Be careful 
that the hot mixture does not spatter on hands when water is 
added. Mrs. C. J. Chandler.

quite thick on a shallow, buttered dish. When cool cut in 
squares. Helen M. Hartmann.

Of just a helpful, little hint. 

— M. K. C. 
¥ 

Put alternate layers of drief beef with escalloped po- 
tatoes. 

Equal parts of currant and red raspberry juice make a de- 
licious jelly. 

Cracker and bread crumbs used in covering the tops of 
scallops, etc., should be well greased with melted butter. This 
makes a better covering than the dry crumbs dotted with but- 
ter, and uses less of the butter. 

Bread crumbs should always be used for covering articles 
for frying, as cracker crumbs absorb the grease. 

Three-fourths lb. of coffee will make I gallon ; 1 gallon 
will make 25 cups. 

One gallon of ice cream, if served on plate, will serve 24 
persons ; if in sherbet glasses, 30, 

Two quarts of chicken salad will serve 12 persons. 

On large loaf of bread will make 20 three cornered sand- 
wiches. 

One quart of oysters, creamed, will fill 12 large pattie 
shells. 

One and one-half lbs. of salted nuts will serve 25 people. 

One pint of flour made up in baking powder biscuits will 
make from 12 to 15, according to the size of the cutter. 

When through frying ,add a pared potato cut in slices to 
the fat and let it cook slowly until the potato has browned. 
Strain fat through cheesecloth. Clarified in this way, the fat 
may be used indefinitely. 

A slice of stale bread tied in muslin, placed in top of cab- 
bage when cooking, is excellent for absorbing the disagree- 
able odor. 

Use KNOX GELATINE if you would be sure of results. • 



HOUSEHOLD HINTS 193 

SOAP. 

Melt 5^ lbs. grease. Dissolve 1 can of concentrated lye 
in 1 quart of water. Add to this 1 cup of borax, 1 cup of am- 
monia. When the grease is cool, before it thickens, pour in 
the lye slowly and beat for 1 minute. When it begins to 
thicken pour into a dripping pan to mold. When hard enough 
cut into squares. 

Use old dishes, as the lye will ruin good ones. 

COLD CREAM. 

Melt Yz lb. mutton suet. Strain. To 2 cups of hot tallow 
add 1 oz. camphor gum, pulverized, 2 ozs. glycerine. Beat 
until creamy. 

HAND LOTION. 

To four parts of hay rum, 1 part glycerine, 1 part soap 
liniment. 

FOR GARNISHING. 

Take round chocolate candy, stick almonds for petals in 
flower shape. 



Nozv all good things must have an end, 
So there's no need of further looking; 

For this completes our book, dear friend, 
And zve will leave you to your cooking.
