A very traditional seed cake (caraway) receipt

  • a receipt is an old fashioned word for recipe

3/4 cup butter

2 Tablespoons sugar

3 beaten eggs

3 teaspoons caraway seeds

1 and 1/2 cups plus 1 Tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

pinch salt

1 Tablespoon ground almonds ( or almond meal)

1 Tablespoon milk

Beat first 3 ingredients together and add others, stir to mix. Bake in a buttered bundt pan at 350 degrees for 30 min (check starting at 25).

Will fill pan 1/2 way up- making a cute small seed cake. Cool and slice thin. Enjoy with a cup of hot tea.

It is buttery and not sweet. Reminds me a bit of buttery cornbread or a rye bread.
