Breakfast with Jane Austen

In case you like me, feel the need to bake something that starts with about a pound of butter this weekend, here’s a recipe for Jane Austen’s pound cake from The Guardian.

Equal parts (by weight) butter, sugar, flour, and eggs, this pound cake is dense and moist. And, at least for me, gains a great deal of flavor from the knowledge that this is what Jane herself would eat in the mornings, along with a cup of tea, of course.

Enjoy!

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
