There is something very special about handwritten recipes. The writing seems almost an embodiment of the person. I thought you might like to see the Red Velvet Cake recipe my mother-in-law wrote by hand and gave to me years ago.
If you enlarge the photo by clicking it, you will see that the handwritten recipe bears the footprints, mostly in red, of Red Velvet Cakes I went on to make from it. You may also notice that I altered Mom's recipe due to an error she made regarding the amount of salt called for. You will see, too, that Mom suffered with arthritis.
