This looks to be torn from the back of a Gold Medal flour bag. Date unknown but I believe it to be 1980, a few different recipes offered.

Gold Medal Flour RecipesA Century of Baking Success

“Gold Medal” flour originated 100 years ago. On June 8, 1880, Washburn-Crosby Company–a forerunner of General Mills–won a gold medal for its patent process wheat flour called “Superlative.” The award was given at the Millers’ International Exhibition in Cincinnati, Ohio. That same year, Washburn-Crosby Company made its award-winning flour available to consumers under the “Gold Medal” brand name. A century later, Gold Medal flour is still a champion. It is the No. 1 selling family flour in the U.S.
