    Hi. I'm hoping someone can help me please.

    I'm looking for the "White Cake" recipe from an old Purity cookbook ( not sure what year). Would someone be kind enough to write it out on here for me please. I heard it was the "best" ! Thank you

    Will try to look for it this weekend if no one else posts it. I am sure I have a Purity book in my box of recipe books in the basement.
