I WAS AT MY GRANDMOTHER HOUSE IN MISSOUR IN 1959. MY GRANDMOTHER BAKED ON A WOOD STOVE AND I ASKED TO BAKE A CAKE. SHE BAKED MOSTLY BISCUITS. SHE TOLD ME THAT BAKING IN A WOOD STOVE WOULD BE DIFFERENT THAN USING MY MOTHER’S GAS STOVE AT HOME. BIG BAD ME SAID I COULD DO IT. SO I MIXED UP THE CAKE AND PUT IT IN THE OVEN. I FORGOT TO PUT MORE WOOD IN SO IT WAS NOT HOT ENOUGH TO BAKE FOR ABOUT THE FIRST 10 TO 20 MINTUES IT WAS IN THE OVEN. I ALSO COULD NOT SEE THE CAKE BECAUSE OPENING THE DOOR CAUSE THE HEAT TO HAVE TO BUILD UP AGAIN. WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GET IT OUT IT WAS NOT RIGHT AT ALL. BIG HUMP IN THE MIDDLE A LITTLE UNDER BAKED IN THE SIDES BUT UNCLE JOHN ATE IT AND SAID IT WAS GOOD. I NEVER BAKED AT GRANDMOTHER AGAIN.

Great memory and a good lesson learned. Sometimes the good old days weren't so good without modern appliances.

Sure glad we don't have to use wood today. We've come a long way, but a good memory

This brings back memories of my grandfather, he would only bake and cook on a woodstove! I remember he had a gas stove and the old wood stove and all the delicious goodies came from that old wood stove!!

Great story! Thank goodness we've come a long way from wood ovens! Now we even have convection ovens! Cute memory of your grandparents.
