Vintage Recipe: Magic Coconut Orange Loaf Cake

Happy Thursday to all! It's time for more vintage recipes. I try to preserve these gems for another generation. You are invited to preserve your own vintage recipes, your mom's, grandmother's, aunt's or vintage recipes from old cookbooks, postcards, adverting, etc. So many are quite delicious, some are hilarious. So whether you want to honor a loved one's recipe or give us a "what were they thinking" chuckle, please link up your vintage recipes below. I can't wait to see what you have to share. Today, I'm taking a break from my vintage cookbook to share an old advertising recipe for a tasty coconut orange cake. It's a Canadian brand since 1897.


Magic Baking Powder Coconut Orange Loaf

Magic Baking Powder2 1/2 cups once-sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons Magic Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mace
3 teaspoons orange rind
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, well beaten
2 tablespoons Planters Peanut Oil
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup seedless raisins
Preheat oven to 350 F. (moderate). Sift together into a large bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and mace. Add orange rind. Make a well in center. Combine, then add the orange juice, milk, eggs, and oil. Stir until just blended. Stir in coconut and raisins. Pour batter into a well-greased 4 1/2" X 8 1/2" loaf pan. Bake for one hour or until done.

For basic linky party etiquette you MUST: Follow the linky party theme; link directly to your participating posts; link back to all your hostesses on each participating post (NOT a different page), and don't just link and run. Please do your best to visit fellow participants and leave them a comment. Because of those who don't follow such etiquette, I'm saddened to say that for the first time in almost 4 years of blogging, I will have to resort to deleting those who abuse the use of the linky parties here at Joy of Desserts. Thank you! If you follow basic linky party etiquette, I thank you. All your hostesses and fellow bloggers will appreciate it and you will benefit too. You will find that you are helping your own blogs become more popular and helping the foodie community remain a friendly community.
