Country House New Year’s Cake (1883)


Buy or make 6 light sponge raspberry rolls, which cut into slices half an inch thick; lay them in a dish in a circle, one lying half over the other; put in an oven for ten minutes; add in a small stewpan 2 table-spoonfuls of currant jelly, 2 glasses of sherry; put on the fire, and, when boiling, pour over and serve. Any jam will do.
