Molasses Cake

Pictured is molasses cake right from the oven with butter melting on top. This cake tastes like gingerbread cookies and is very good for an after dinner dessert.

Poor Man's Fruit Cake

Many fruit cakes have a lot of fruit in them. Why does this only have raisins? It's all in the title! Poor Man's Fruit Cake was made by those that couldn't afford many of the lavish fruits to put into it.

I've made this recipe for my grandma a few times now and she absolutely loves it.

A New Beginning

Welcome to my little place!

The idea for Historic Eats started in 2010 when I first got my Amazon Kindle. I noticed that there were a lot of free books available for download and many of those were old cookbooks.

I took a look at some of the recipes and found that many of them actually sounded appealing. So I decided to start making some of them in order to broaden my food knowledge.

I love history and am the author of a local history book on my city. I also love food, so I decided to combine my love of food with my love of history to create Historic Eats.

I hope you enjoy what I make. Feel free to add your own historical recipes!
