Gold Cake / Sea Foam Candy

You can see how damaged this page is. It might have been a favorite recipe. There are a few different types of Gold Cake recipes out there, but most of them seem to be a bundt style cake. Since this recipe includes no method, we can only guess how it is to be baked.

There’s also a bonus recipe for Sea Foam Candy. I originally thought the page had the method to make Gold Cake, but after scanning I realized it was in fact another recipe. Because I’m handling these pages as little as possible, I was moving quickly in the scanning process, your gain, I suppose. :-) There are also recipes out there for various versions of Sea Foam Candy, but most of them include vinegar, no egg, and chocolate for dipping.

Gold Cake

Yolks of 8 eggs, 1 whole egg

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup milk

2 cups flour

1 tbsp cream of tartar

1/2 tbsp soda

Flavor to suit


Sea Foam Candy

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup water

Boil until it forms when dripped in water. Cool and beat into the well beaten of 1 egg and walnuts. ** this makes no sense; candy makers have any input?

  1. This is an odd bit at the end of the recipe. My guess is that the sugar mixture gets to about a soft ball stage and then it gets mixed into a nut mixture to give it some substance. I’m picturing just chopping walnuts and adding them to beaten egg until you get mixture that holds together. I’d be concerned about adding the hot sugar syrup and not curdling the egg. Although, if it curdles, guess we don’t have to worry about eating uncooked eggs! This doesn’t even sound appealing–sweet walnut candy with an egg .
