    [quote="Chef #1194999"]I love the 1967 Purity Cookbook! If it weren't for stealing that book from my mom years ago I doubt I would have ever learned to cook. Mine has been used so often the wire coil is completely missing and so are some of the recipes. It is my secret ingredient! I was very excited to learn about the new one but I haven't gotten around to buying one yet.[/quote]

    Yes, this is a book that I still use!! An oldie, but goodie icon_exclaim.gif Welcome to Zaar!

    I came to the laptop tonight because my husband and I believe that my Purity Flour Cookbook, which I've had since college (1970) has disappeared! It had our (and our grandkids) favourite pancake recipe that didn't require butter..but vegetable oil.

    We think it may have been placed on a stack of newspapers that were to go to recycling..and perhaps more papers dropped on top..and off it all went!
    In any case, if anyone has that recipe (with milk, egg and oil mixed together before put into the dry ingredients), we'd all be grateful!!
    When initiating my search I found a 'Purity pancake recipe' but it wasn't ours...and as simple as the recipe is...can't remember how much flour sugar and baking powder there was..but not 2 cups..I'm fairly sure. icon_rolleyes.gif !

    It's the little things that mean the most!

    icon_biggrin.gif My Purity book is falling apart, slowly, but surely!! LOL
    The pancake recipe in my edition is -
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
    3 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    Combine 1beaten egg
    1 3/4 cups milk
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil add to dry ingredients, mix only until combined.
    Yield 12 - inch pancakes..

    Hope this is the one you want!!
    Elly

    PS I bought mine in 1967!!

    Thankyou Elly! That's it!...and I did in fact remember the quantity of ingredients used.

    We've just had pancakes with a grandson who had a sleepover...and I've written the recipe in a book that I've been recording recipes in for 40 years. It's a keeper!

    My hardcover edition of the recipe book had had the spine covered and recovered in duct tape many times over the years. It was my 'go to' book for so many things.
    Thanks again!

    Glad Elly was able to find it for you. My copy I have had for so many years I forget where I got it from. The wire binding is still good although several of the pages are getting tattered.

    I do remember where I purchased mine!

    I was in residence in what was once Cooksville...now Mississauga, while in college..and while getting some groceries..saw a display of the cookbooks in the baking products aisle. I also remember reading it for hours..with big plans to make so many things...and not working on assignments!! icon_lol.gif

    I have never heard of the Purity Cookbook, but I do have some other Canadian cookbooks that are excellent. I'll be sure to get this one, too. I really like the old-fashioned recipes.
