To make Queen Cakes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of London flour
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 pound of loaf sugar
  • 1 pound of butter
  • 1 or 2 spoonfuls of rose water
  • 1/2 pound of currans
  • a little shred of mace

Instructions

Take the flour dry'd well before the fire, eggs, loaf sugar beaten and sifted, put one half to your eggs and the other to your butter; take the butter and melt it without water put it into a stone bowl, when it is almost cold put in your sugar and the rose water, beat it very quick, for half an hour, till it be as white as cream; beat the eggs and sugar as long and very quick, whilst they be white; when they are well beat mix them all together; then take the currans cleaned well, and the mace, so you may fill one part of your tins before you put in your currans; you may put a quarter of a pound of almonds shred (if you please) into them that is without currans; you may ice them if you please, but do not let the iceing be thicker than you may lie on with a little brush.
