Esther Breeden, Willow Springs, Missouri, writes that she received a pamphlet of recipes when she married in 1965, and the booklet included a recipe for Orange Soda Pop Cake. The booklet was called Kitchen-Klatter, and it was published in Iowa. The recipe has been lost, and she’d like to bake the cake again for her family.
Genevieve Sullivan, Orangevale, California, hopes this is the recipe Esther is looking for; it’s from the website Cooks.com. Genevieve lives in an appropriate location for an Orange Soda Pop Cake recipe, don’t you think?
