English Ginger Cakes
We are quite accustomed to speak
ing of "old-fashioned ginger bread,"
and this is right, for ginger is the moat
For years and years cakes were
baked without any special character,
it being thought quite enough that they
were sweet and of finer texture than
the coarse bread of those earlv davs.
However, spices were esteemed from the
beginning of civilization when they
were brewed into refreshing drinks
and served with many foods. At last
China's preserved ginger root was
brought to Kngland by travelers who
told of its wonderful medicinal prop
erties. At first only royalty was able to
secure it, but Queen' Elizabeth, who
seems to have been a housewifely sort
of a maiden after all, had it made into
small cakes to be eaten when her house
hold had dined on too rich foods.
Whether the sweets were so tempt
ing or living so rich we cannot tell,
but the court ladies and lords kept up
such a constant demand for the tarts
that a special baker was appointed to
make "Queen's Ginger Cakes."
As the pleasant remedy was found
to be as soothing to the digestions of
everyday folks it was soon England's
most popular cake. There is probably
small resemblance in our manifold gin-
K cr cakes to those of Mem Old Eng
land, but even to-day there' is no cake
that is better liked.
