Seventeenth Century Snacking

I made caraway seed cake! A favourite of nanas of a few decades ago, who would offer you "a bit of cake" - and it would turn out to be nasty.

With my mature palate now, I decided to try seed cake again. It's not nasty! There's lemon zest in my cake, and together with caraway seeds, it's an unusual and yummy taste. Very nice with coffee.

My old recipe book suggested coriander seeds as an alternative. You'd have to crack them up, surely, they are a big seed. But that would be so unusual, it would sound trendy and modern. Gotta make that next!
