Welcome to a new feature at The Country Farm Home. . .
Country Sundays were once the highlight of many a hard week's labor.
It was a day to catch up with friends and family,
to rest and relax,
but most of all, to come together in worship.
Many times, after church services there was "dinner on the grounds". . . .
where long plank tables were set up outside under the trees
and pot luck dishes were there for the eating.
One of the cakes often baked for the church dinner was the Scripture Cake.
This old recipe, originally from England,
has been in my recipe collection for so many years,
I'd forgotten all about it.
In our church, these cakes often showed up
at Bake Sales for a money-making project.
A small card with the recipe was enclosed.
It's a delicious cake!
Want to try it?
Here's a translation. . . .but, be sure and look up the scriptures first!
Beat together until light and fluffy 1/2 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, and 2 tablespoons honey. Beat 6 egg yolks until light and add. Add sifted mixture of 1 1/2 cups sifted flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon cloves and a pinch of salt, in alternate portions with 1/2 cup milk. Stir in 2 cups chopped figs (apple will work, too), 2 cups raisins, 2 cups chopped almonds. Fold in 6 egg whites, beaten stiff. Bake the cake in well-greased 10 inch tube pan for 2 hours at 300 degrees.
. . . Sunday Blessings from the farmhouse. . .
