FOODS EATEN IN CHILDREN’S BOOKS #1: Seed Cake – a perennial it seems to me in early 20th century children’s lit; the Wouldbegoods and Treasure Seekers were surely always noshing it. Not just children’s lit – it turns up in Ulysses too – but that is what I remember it from. This much older recipe makes it sound quite nice – when I read about it I always assumed it was rather chewy and tasted good-for-you.
