The Ideal Baking Powder )
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder.
For more than fifty years Cream of Tartar and Bi
carbonate of Soda have been used for leavening purposes
with sufficient flour added to preserve tho strength of tho
powder unimpaired, and this with the addition of whites
of eggs comprises this pure and wholesome leavening
agent, that has been the standard for 40 years. In its
use pure, wholesome and delicious food is always assured.
Makes cake and biscuit that retain their moisture, and
while they are flaky and extremely light they are fine grained,
not coarse and full of holes as made with ammonia baking
powders, latter dries up quickly. Alum powders leave a bit
ter taste in tho bread or cake.
