Ingredients:

6 lb. of Flour.

2 lb. Sugar.

1 quart bottles of Honey.

Boil sugar and honey together; add one dessertspoonful cloves, two dessert spoonfulscinnamon, pounded; remove from the fire. Add the weight of an egg in potash, and one wineglass of brandy.

Mix the flour with two teaspoonfuls of soda; then mix the hot syrup and flour well together, working the dough well with the hands; roll out thinly. Put into a buttered pan and bake in a slow oven for one hour. Cut into squares. Preserved citron, cut into strips and mixed with the dough, improves the flavour. One-quarter of this quantity enough for a small family. Will keep for some time.
