From 'The Dictionary of Daily Wants' - 1859

Next beat them together till thoroughly mixed and light; and put to them a little shred lemon-peel, or a few blanched almonds chopped, sifted sugar to taste, &c. Pound in a quartern of dried and sifted flour. Mix well, and bake in a pan for an hour, in a rather quick oven.
