Living in the Old West required not only stamina, but innovation. Imagine putting a cake together without fresh supplies, measuring spoons, or a dedicated work area; imagine baking that cake without a thermometer, steady heat, or a timer. How did those who traveled and lived in the Old West do it? The Old West Baking Book shares the baking secrets of Native American ranch house cooks, chuck wagon chefs, and wagon train homemakers, with over a hundred Old West recipes updated and kitchen tested. Laced among classic baked goods recipes such as Sourdough Biscuits, Spotted Pup Pudding, and Wild Grape-Apple Pie are dozens of anecdotes and fun facts on how our ancestors were so successful with so little. Open the pages of The Old West Baking Book and bring the flavor of the Old West into your home today.
