Potempa: Reader’s newspaper clipping cake recipe has 50-year history – Chicago Tribune

Restaurant News

While sorting through files recently, LaHaie found a clipping of a cake recipe she made as a holiday surprise in December 1969 for the features department at the Post-Tribune. At that time, she said the features department, responsible for reporting society news, show biz and celebrity tidbits, gardening, recipes and fashion in the newspaper’s feature sections, was called the “Women’s News Department.”
