Fruit Cake

  • 3 lbs dry flour
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • 1 lb butter
  • 1 lb sugar
  • 3 lbs stoned raisins
  • 2 lbs currants
  • 3/4 lb almonds, blanched
  • 1 lb citron, sliced

  • 1 Tbsp allspice
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 2 Tbsps cinnamon
  • 2 nutmegs

  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/2 pint molasses with the spices in it
  • 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 Tbsp water
Add the baking powder to the flour. Add the spices to the molasses. Heat gently 20-30 minutes, not hot to the point of boiling. Add the eggs and the rest of the ingredients, except for the citron slices. Mix completely. Put the fruit in last, stirring it gradually. The fruit should be well floured. If necessary, add flour after the fruit is in. Butter a sheet of paper and lay it in the pan. Lay in some slices of citron, then a layer of the mixture, then of citron again until the pan is nearly full. Bake 3-4 hours, according to the thickness of the loaves, in a tolerably hot oven at 375 degrees F in steady heat. Let it cool in the oven gradually. Put icing when cold.
