This recipe is based on seedcake from The Hobbit. This recipe is from the blog Food Through the Pages.


  • 1/2 lb. of butter (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground mace
  • 1 Tbs seeds (caraway is traditional, but I like poppy seeds)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 2 cups flour


Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the spices and seeds, followed by the eggs and brandy, beating to combine. Gradually add the flour, stirring until everything is mixed together completely. Pour this thick batter into a tin lined with buttered paper, and bake it at 350F for 1 hour.
