Abstract

THIS is a traditional cake of English rural origin that is usually served on "Mothering Sunday" or Mid-Lent Sunday (the fourth Sunday in Lent).

Mothering Sunday is the day on which sons and daughters visit their parents and take them gifts. Quite often the gift takes the form of a Simnel cake.
