This is a great blog! It's so fun to read what was baked back in the day. I'm wondering, what are butter seeds? And did they really use amonia in thier baking, or is that another word for something else?
The handwriting is exquisite, isn't it? Love this!

This is brilliant, keep it up. They had so few ingredients back then but came up with endless baking variety...
