Ivan Day Shrewsbury Cakes recipe on James Martin: Home Comforts

Ivan Day turns back the clock and make Shrewsbury Cake biscuits from an old Elizabethan recipe for a crowd pleaser on James Martin: Home Comforts.

They are normally made from dough that contains sugar, flour, egg, butter, and rose water. Shrewsbury cakes can be small in size for serving several at a time, or large for serving as a dessert in themselves.

Ivan serves his biscuits with a glass of Arrack punch made with a recipe from the same period.
