The rewards of archival research are so sweet! Today one of our fabulous researchers brought in this “honey bread,” which she baked from a recipe she came across while studying the Beatrice Wood papers. She included the recipe on a card she made to accompany the cake. My favorite instruction is: “If one wants to be really fancy, one can add crystallised ginger on top.” Sorry we didn’t manage to get a picture before someone had already taken a piece (baked goods do not last long in this office).
