Thick Ginger Bread.
A Pound and a half of flour takes up one pound
of treacle, almost as much sugar, an ounce
of beaten ginger, two ounces of caraway seeds,
four ounces of citron, and lemon peel candied,
the yolks of four eggs; cut your sweet meats,
mix all, and bake it in large cakes, on tin plates.
