Seed Cake / Frøkake

A classic afternoon tea recipe found on picturebritain.com324_Seed Cake_post

The girl who runs picturebritain writes: When Miss Betty Barker hosts her exclusive tea party she serves a seed-cake that is so good, even the stuckuppity Mrs. Jamieson (who insists that it reminds her of scented soap) condescends to partake of it.
“Mrs. Jamieson was kindly indulgent to Miss Barker’s want of knowledge of the customs of high life; and, to spare her feelings, ate three large pieces of seed-cake, with a placid, ruminating expression of countenance, not unlike a cow’s.”

Perhaps you too will find seed-cake to be a mouthwatering confection fit for a proper tea (I trust that you won’t resemble a cow whilst indulging in it). This recipe comes from the most famous writer of cookbookery in British history, Mrs. Beeton herself. It was published in her book from 1861 “Book of Household Management”.
