Soul cakes…

…are an old tradition in England, all part of the marking of  All Hallows/All Souls. There’s info about it all here.   I baked a batch of soul cakes this evening to take to church on All Souls…after evening Mass we will be visiting a local graveyard to pray…A traditional soul-cake recipe produces a sort of old-fashioned rock cake, different from the rich sticky cakes that we relish today like fudge brownies or lemon drizzle or a spicy bun-loaf.  But, split and buttered, a soul cake is something to enjoy on a November evening.
