Granny’s Fruit Bars

CAPE ARGUS - 1939, February 11
Anyone can bake with the help of Royal’s Double Action Baking Powder!

The most inexperienced cook can bake a cake with confidence – if she uses Royal. For this unique Baking Powder has a scientifically regulated “Double Action” that ensures success before it is put into the oven.

The first action takes place in the batter when the leavening process really should begin. The second action takes place in the heat of the oven when the Cream of Tartar completes the regulated raising process ensuring a cake that is light, even-textured and delicious. There is no fear of failure or waste of ingredients if you use this balanced and economical baking powder.
Order a tin of Royal today, and make some “Granny’s Fruit Bars.” They are delicious and nourishing. Especially good for children.
