Emily Dickinson’s coconut cake recipe. As Dickinson scholar Nelly Lambert wrote, “even I was surprised to learn just how prominent a role baking played in her life.” Cooking even inspired some of her poetry; below is the poem “The Things that never can come back, are several—”, which was written on the back of this recipe:
The Things that never can come back, are several — Childhood — some forms of Hope — the Dead — Though Joys — like Men — may sometimes make a Journey — And still abide — We do not mourn for Traveler, or Sailor, Their Routes are fair — But think enlarged of all that they will tell us Returning here — “Here!” There are typic “Heres” — Foretold Locations — The Spirit does not stand — Himself — at whatsoever Fathom His Native Land —
Buzzfeed has also compiled a great list of recipes by famous authors, including Nabokov’s Eggs à la Nabocoque, Ernest Hemingway’s pan-fried trout, and Jonathan Franzen’s Pasta with Kale.
