Is it ok to eat during pregnancy? I am almost 26 weeks and ate like one or two a day a few times. I found nothing informative on the internet and was thinking of asking my doctor...

Sorry did not mean to. I was going to ask my doctor and avoid it anyway. I just thought someone here might have an idea esp that one doctor might not have all the answers...

Early in JRR Tolkein's "The Hobbit," there is a reference to Bilbo's seed cakes. As we used to pretend we were Hobbits a lot as children, my mother would send us off with a few slices of these. The fact that my younger brothers would later lose her wedding ring in the neighbor's woodpile is not entirely irrelavent. The One Ring did make it back to her, but we had to dismantle the entire yard to find it. She bought them a cheap costume ring to use from then on. So it's a recipe near and dear to my heart.


Bilbo Baggins' Seed Cakes

3 eggs
1 12oz can (=1 1/2c) evaporated milk
1 c oil
3c flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
3/4c poppy seeds
1 1/2c sugar

Mix all, bake in loaf pans 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

Enjoy! It's also great for High Tea, which my mother also did occasionally with us girls.
