Indian pound cake

Picked up the winter issue of South Shore Edible today. Loved the editors holiday food memories. A great article on wood burning ovens.There is a recipe for Indian pound cake that was found at pilgrim hall in a notebook dated early 1800's.Since I had all the ingredients I decided to try it,it contains johnny cake meal which is a white flint cornmeal grown in Rhode Island see the article on greys gristmill in the SSE winter edition. It also contained 1/2 of a nutmeg which I thought would be overkill but it was delicious.Foodies has the magazine in the store,pick up a copy soon as always a great read.
