  1. I love a good, basic vanilla cake recipe. I’m looking forward to trying this one out although I’m curious- how much is a gill worth?

    Great idea for a blog. I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts. Thanks so much for stopping by mine. 🙂

    1. Hi B, thank you for your interest. A gill is a quarter of a pint. I love old recipes, and Art prints from the Edwardian times. look forward to reading your blog.
      Kate.
