The front cover of the pamphlet features the text It's Fun To Cook -- With Quaker Sugar, beneath which is a color drawing of a Quaker maid pulling a cupcake pan from an oven. The back cover features six Quaker Sugar boxes on a white background, with each box being a different kind of Quaker Sugar. The inside front cover and the following three pages feature the story of sugar cane, from the field to the consumer, with both color and black and white photographs. Another page includes facts about sugar. Most of the pages after that are devoted to recipes (beverages; candy; cakes; cookies; desserts; fillings-frostings; fruits; pastries; pies and tarts; preserves; quick breads; and sweet tricks), some with color photographs, plus black and white drawings of the Quaker maid.
