Vintage recipes are as important, to me, for one’s family history and legacy as story telling, names, photos, and items and objects that are saved and passed down from one generation to another. It’s a way of sharing with the new generations what life was like ‘back in the day’. This pumpkin pound cake is one of those cakes that’s a spin off of a vintage recipe! With today’s craze with fast food, frozen entrees, and ‘homemade’ sometimes being considered making ‘Hamburger Helper’ then vintage recipes can preserve not only what’s more healthy, but also what makes you who you are.
The memories that are attached to foods, smells, time in the kitchen, holidays when everyone gathers in the kitchen and so much of the laughing, sharing, and camaraderie comes from what’s put on the table are things that are seared in our minds forever and ever! This ‘Vintage Pumpkin Pound Cake’ is a ‘Boho’ of the originalVintage Pound Cakewhere I tell the story of Mama Helen~~if you have time, swing by and find out about this feisty strong woman who could smack down some good eats!
Here’s another pumpkin recipe you’ll love! I promise, cross my heart! Check it out!!
