The term "compound" found in some older recipe books refers to a mixture of butter and lard used in baking. When butter was too expensive, homemakers would use this less expensive "compound" in place of butter.

Today there is a "Bakery Compound" that is used in commercial bakeries instead of butter or margarine - basically it is a special type of margarine that helps soften and lubricate bread structure and extend shelf life.
