Since I’m interested in Alaska history, I had to borrow my recipe from a vintage cookbook, A Collection of Choice Recipes compiled by the Anchorage Womans Club in Anchorage Alaska in 1921, reprinted by the club in 1990. And because my novel Fools Gold will be released in December, I chose the Gold Cake. Enjoy!

Gold Cake

Cream 1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar added slowly

Beat 1 whole egg and 4 yolks until light

Add extracts of 1-3 almond

1-3 vanilla and beat well


Alternate 1/2 cup milk with 1 3/4 cups flour sifted with 2 teaspoons baking powder and beat quickly. Bake in oblong pan in moderate oven [350 degrees] 20 to 25 minutes.
