Pucker up!  It's time for old time lemon cake recipes

One of my favorite desserts are the vast array of lemon cakes.  
These recipes were found in tin recipe boxes.  You may remember
them.  They usually sat atop of your mother's or grandmother's
stove, refridgerator, kitchen counter or tucked away in an old
metal cabnet.

Lemon has a wonderful way of bursting with flavor the second you
take a bite.

Mimi's Lemon Pie Recipe

4 egg yolks, well beaten
1 cup sugar mixed with heaping
Tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
Juice of 3 lemons and grated rind of one

Unfortunately for me, this was the end of
the recipe.  I am going to "guess" you
would pour this into an unbaked pie shell
and place in the 350 degree oven until
done.  I would cover with Cool Whip when
serving.  Maybe a nice meringue on top
would work well.

This recipe is not for the novice cook.

1 Tablespoon lemon extract

Cream Crisco and sugar.  Add eggs.  Mix buttermilk, soda,
and hot water and add alternately with flour.  Add lemon
extract.  Bake 1 1/4 hours at 350 degrees.  After cake has
baked and been removed from pan and partially cooled,
saturate with sauce.

Heat until sugar has melted and pour over cake.

Lemon Ice Box Pie with Spiced Crumbs

1 small can evaporated milk
1/3 cup real lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
Spiced Crumbs

Pour milk into ice cube tray and freeze until crystals
start to form.  Separate eggs.  Mix yolks with sugar,
juice and peel.  Beat whites stiff, then lightly mix in
yolk mixture.  Turn chilled milk into bowl, beat stiff
and carefully fold into egg mixture.  Pour into ice
tray lined with crumbs.  Swirl top, decorate with
lemon peel twists and freeze.

Spiced Crumbs: To 3/4 cups crisp toast crumbs,
add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg,
1/4 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4
teaspoon ground cloves, 1/4 teaspoon ginger.  Mix
well.  Work in 3 Tablespoons melted butter.  Line ice
cube tray, pressing firmly with spoon.

Note: I don't know how old this recipe is, but
remember back then the ice cube trays were made
of metal, not plastic and did not have individual ice
cups.  I am thinking when it says - "Line ice cube
tray, pressing firmly." it is refering to the metal
vintage ice cube trays.
