A Wonderful “Twelfth Night” Cake!

Jon and Kevin are in the kitchen today making a big recipe: a 5-lb. twelfth cake. Twelfth cakes were the center attraction to Twelfth Night celebrations. They are easily documentable in 18th century texts, but interestingly, recipes do not appear in cookbooks until the early 19th century. So for this episode, in the absence of 18th century recipes specifically called “twelfth cake,”Jon and Kevin chose another “great cake” recipe called “Bride’s Cake.” It’s virtually identical in ingredients and technique to the twelfth cake recipes of the early 1800s. Today’s recipe comes from Richard Brigg’s 1788 cookbook, “The English Art of Cookery.” It’s a wonderful, complex cake that is perfect for a traditional holiday dessert. Enjoy!
