Jenny Lind in ”La Sonnambula”
=Jenny Lind Tea Cake=

1/2 Cupful of Sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoonful of Soda
1 Tablespoonful of Melted Butter
2 Teaspoonfuls of Cream of Tartar
Stir salt, soda and cream of tartar into the dry flour. Beat the egg, add sugar and butter, stir into the flour and mix with enough milk to make batter as thick as a cake. Bake in a moderate oven. To be eaten hot with butter.

From "Things Mother Used To Make"(1913) by Lydia Maria Gurney.
Why this cake is named after Jenny Lind I don't know, but it sounds as a simple recipe so I thought some brave blogger might like to try it.
