"100 Years of Wright Township History 1855-1955" by Ortha Green. The book can be found in the Corydon, Iowa library.
"From the beginning down to the present, all Wright township women were good cooks....and one of the best cooks of 1905...(was) Mrs. Eva Clark.....my mouth waters at the thought of Eva's fine grained Burnt Sugar Cakes, every one perfect and topped with thick icing..."
Does anyone happen to know what Eva Clark's maiden name was or to whom she was married?
I'll have to bake up one of these cakes and see what it's like this winter.
