This recipe dates back to 1937. In the old days before all the fancy mixers, you sifted your flour multiple times and creamed your butter and sugar until it looked like a smooth paste. Many recipes were designed for beating the batter with so many strokes. So enjoy this old-time great tasting recipe. Take pictures and let me know how it turns out for you.
