Regency Cake Recipes

Since it's my birthday today, I was curious on what kind of cake there was in the Regency Era. So I headed over to The Jane Austen Center's website and found a couple of Regency recipes. I never tried to make any of these recipes... I wonder how some of them taste! I think a couple of them include rose water, which I never used in cooking.

"Spunge" Cake (The Recipe references Mansfield Park, I think)

There are also other recipes at the Jane Austen Center. One of these days, I should try some of them!


  1. They all look quite yummy! Happy Birthday!!!!! :) I hope you have a wonderful day!


  2. Happy birthday, Elegance of Fashion! (and I still think you should pick a name, any name. ;) I love your blog!

  3. Thank you, Charity U! I've been thinking about a name... I've been thinking about it for a while. I want to pick something good, so it might require some time. Hopefully soon. :-)

  4. I tend to go too fast with things like that. ;)
