“From the 18th Annual Bake-Off ~ Bake Off Cook Book” subtitled “100 Prizewinning Recipes … Shortcutted and Up-To-Dated by Pillsbury.” Published by The Pillsbury Company in 1967, the cookbook is a soft cover measuring 5½ x 9 inches with 96 pages. The cook booklet is in excellent used condition, the pages are clean and unmarked.
The 18th Pillsbury Bake Off awarded the $25,000 grand prize to Mrs. Maxine Bullock’s Muffin Mix Buffet Bread. But the winning recipe was not featured on the cover for the third year in a row. Instead, they featured one of the prize winning cakes! I find it fascinating that they kept putting cakes on the covers, instead of the big winners – I guess it just reflects America’s obsession for cakes! Other big prize winning recipes included Gather-Round Pound Cake, Top Me Twice Cake, Easy Livin’ Caramel Cake, Roll-In Sugar Cookies and Tidbit Toppers. Fantastic addition for cookbook collector or foodie!! Such a great piece of history and full of delicious recipes, eighteenth in a series that continues today!
