Daffodil Cake / Påskeliljekake

A fancy cake recipe just right for the upcoming Easter
found in “Igleheart Cake Secrets” published in 1928
Daffodil Cake / Påskeliljekake

This is the second of these old Igleheart’s cookbooks from the 1920s I’m posting from and again I’m struck by how little baking recipes and traditions have changed over the years in comparison with other food. We seem to like cakes and cookies to be as they always have been and I find that rather pleasant in our modern world of constant change – Ted

Spiced Hot Chocolate / Krydret Varm Sjokolade

A hot beverage recipe from the 17th century found on historyextra.comSpiced Hot Chocolate / Krydret Varm Sjokolade

In every issue of BBC History Magazine, picture editor Sam Nott brings you a recipe from the past. In this article, Sam recreates spiced hot chocolate – a chocolate treat enjoyed by kings and queens.

Sam writes: Hot chocolate has always been one of my favourite drinks but I have often wondered when the drink was first consumed in Britain.

I was surprised to find out that chocolate itself arrived in England in the 1600s, with evidence of it being drunk at the court of Charles I – before it was deemed a sinful pleasure by Oliver Cromwell, and banned.

This recipe is based on the drink served at the English court during the 17th and 18th centuries and the spices make it smell – and taste – wonderful. It’s also very simple to make. The drink is very rich – you won’t need a big portion – but since chocolate was believed to have medicinal properties well into the mid-18th century, you can see it as a relatively guilt-free treat!
