Dr. Evan A. Kutzler

Lane Cake

We talk with Dr. Evan A. Kutzler from Western Michigan University about an 1898 cookbook that has been revived. He is the editor of From Biscuits to Lane Cake: Emma Rylander Lane’s “Some Good Things to Eat,” a reprint edition published by Mercer University Press in 2023. The Lane Cake was mentioned by Harper Lee in her novel To Kill a Mockingbird. The Alabama legislature has named it Alabama’s official “state dessert.”
