We came across this procedure in a cookbook circa 1951. Follow this when making cakes at home from scratch!

1. Read the recipe. Every word!
2. Turn on and set the oven.
3. Assemble ingredients. (Ingredients should be at room temperature)
4. Assemble utensils
5. Prepare the pans
6. Sift flour. Measure ingredients.
7. Always measure on the level
