1962 advertisement

This is a 1962 advertisement for Aunt Jemima pancake batter.

It reads:

“Just about the best breakfast that ever greeted a hungry family! And it’s as easy as this:  Mix up Aunt Jemima batter according to package directions. Place cooked bacon strips on griddle and pour batter over each strip.  Bake ‘em golden brown on both sides. Couldn’t be easier – couldn’t taste better!  How about Aunt Jemima Bacon Strip Pancake at your house tomorrow?”

We made these in our breakfast themed class this week and they were as popular today as I imagine they were 50 years ago!


Oh, and here is my kitchen all set up for class.  I like to look at it this way – it is quite literally “the calm before the storm!”
