10 Cakes Husbands Like Best

From Spry’s Recipe Round-Up!

Spry Vegetable Shortening (an early competitor to Crisco and marketed by the Lever Brothers), sponsored a series of radio programs (30s-50s) called “Aunt Jenny’s Real Life Stories,” ending each show with a recipe (featuring Spry as a primary ingredient, of course!)

I’ve found several cookbooks and advertisements extolling the virtues of Spry, including this delightful recipe book, 10 Cakes Husbands Like Best, with a message from Aunt Jenny inside.
