Breakfast with Jane Austen

In case you like me, feel the need to bake something that starts with about a pound of butter this weekend, here’s a recipe for Jane Austen’s pound cake from The Guardian.

Equal parts (by weight) butter, sugar, flour, and eggs, this pound cake is dense and moist. And, at least for me, gains a great deal of flavor from the knowledge that this is what Jane herself would eat in the mornings, along with a cup of tea, of course.
