My Grandmother's Recipe Box: Butterscotch Cake and Sweetened Condensed Milk Dessert


This morning I have a few minutes free so I thought I'd quickly add a couple more recipes from my Grandmother's recipe box.  One of them is pretty difficult to read as it's one of the older ones and written with a pencil.  The second one is in pen so it hasn't faded as much!

This is one of the older ones, and quite faded as it's written in pencil.  Looks like it's from 'Francis'.  I have no idea who that is but butterscotch cake sounds pretty good.

2 1/2 t baking powder
1 t salt
