DRIED APPLE FRUIT CAKE
- 3 Cupfuls of dried apples 3 cups of molasses
- 3 cupfuls of flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 cupful of butter
- 1 teaspoonful soda
- 1 cupful of seedless raisins – optional Add spices if necessary
Soak dried apples over night in cold water enough to swell them; chop them in the morning and put them on the fire with three cups of molasses; stew until almost soft; add a cupful of nice seedless raisins (if possible) and stew a few mo¬ments; when cold, add three cupfuls of flour, one cupful of butter, three eggs and a teaspoonful of soda; bake in a steady oven. This will make two good-sized pan-fuls of splendid cake; the apples will cook like citron and taste deliciously. Raisins may be omitted; also spices to taste may be added.
