To which Johnnae replied to me by email:

 From 2002--

A Great Cake from the Rose Tourney

Yes, I apparently missed this recipe the first time you posted it.  
Thanks for sending me a copy. In figuring out where I would place it,  
I realized that I actually do have a file on period cakes that are  
more recognizably modern than Digby's "Excellent Small Cakes".

So, just in case others are interested in ale-barm risen cakes, see  
this file:
