History Lecturer Dr Bryce Evans brings something sweet to US electionTuesday 8 November 2016
Are you staying up all night to watch the US election coverage? Need some sustenance to keep you going?
Liverpool Hope University's Dr Bryce Evans, a Senior Lecturer in History, and food history expert, may have just the dish for you.
Dr Evans's recent research at the University of Delaware/Winterthur, DE, USA, has uncovered a recipe for Election Cake, a sweet and spiced fruit cake which voters ate to sustain themselves at the polls, but which fell out of fashion in the mid-1800s.
However, Bryce and a new generation of 21st century bakers are helping to bring the recipe back for Election Night 2016. Dr Bryce Evans tells the Washington Post all about Election Cake (video)
