Seatallan given the cake is from late 19 century your statement uncalled for.
the recipe is historical from family that had only one spinster who did not like baking;
the recipe said to be a surefire way to get husband, by 19-and early 20 century standards.

I’ve heard of Lady Baltimore cake - I think Anna Olson might have made it? The first recipe that came up when I searched was Martha Stewart, so mainstream. Too much frosting for my taste

I guess a man-trap is used to catch a husband? :D

One English cake we haven’t mentioned is the Sally Lunn teacake from Bath

Mmm! They're very nice! They are sold in the Sally Lunn tea shop with both savoury and sweet dishes.

I was just thinking of Marlborough buns which are sold in Waitrose. They are similar to a Bath bun and very nice but no-one locally here which is near the Wiltshire Marlborough has ever heard of them as a tradition. Reading online, it seems they may be a supermarket invention!

Didn't mean to offend Wargarden.... and I'm sure it was very effective. Not a man on the planet who can resist a good cake... :)

Mr R reminded me about Nottingham Pudding.

He went to school in Southwell which is where Bramley apples originated. It's basically an apple batter pudding . It has to be made with Bramleys which, of course I can't get here.

This thread reminded me of the time my mother was asked by an elderly neighbour to pick up some biscuits from M&S. She said they were called Selby biscuits. Mother went into M&S and couldn't find them so asked the neighbour what sort of biscuit they were. I've got the old packet here she said and produced the cellophane wrapper that had Sell by ............. She never did find out what sort of biscuit they were :lol:

No mention of the famous Coventry god cake then, renowned the world over or perhaps just a few people in Coventry, I have made them before I moved away, perhaps I should make a batch for old times sake

Not heard of the famous(?) cakes via Coventry or Suffolk. Mincemeat and pastry always goes well together though :chops:.
