1 pound of butter beaten to a cream.
2 pounds of sugar rolled fine.
3 pounds of sifted wheat flour.
3 well-beaten eggs.
3 teaspoonfuls of soda, dissolved in a little water.
1 tablespoonful of ground cinnamon.
½ nutmeg, grated.
1 pound of currants, washed and dried.
1 pound of raisins, stoned and out in two. Work the whole well together, divide in 8 loaves, put in but- tered basins, and bake one hour in a moderate oven. One-half this rule makes one large loaf.
1 pint of lukewarm milk.
2 quarts of sifted flour.
½ cupful of yeast.
Set this batter where it will rise quickly. When perfectly light work in with the hand.
4 beaten eggs. 1 teaspoonful of salt.
2 teaspoonfuls of ground cinnamon. 1 pound of white sugar.
½ pound of butter (1 cup, packed). Rub butter and sugar to a cream and work into the cake and add 1 quart of sifted flour. Mix together with the hand and set where it will rise again., When of a spongy lightness put into buttered cake-pans and let them stand fifteen or twenty minutes before baking. 1½ pounds of raisins added just before putting the cake in tins is an addition. Flavor with a wineglassful of rose-water.
3 cupfuls of thick, light bread sponge. 1 cupful of butter, worked in by hand. Melt the butter if necessary. Part lard may be used.
4 eggs, beaten with:
1 teaspoonful cinnamon.
2 cupfuls of white sugar. 1 nutmeg, grated.
1 teaspoonful of soda, dissolved in 1 small cupful of milk. Work the whole well for ten minutes and work in 1 pound of seeded raisins. Put in buttered cake-pans and let rise twenty minutes before baking.
1 pound of dates, seeded and cut rather small; make a batter as for Snowflake Cake and put batter and dates in the pan in alternate layers, beginning and ending with batter.
Make as above, substituting figs out fine for dates.
2 cupfuls powdered sugar. 2/3 cupful sweet milk.
½ cupful butter, scant. 3 cupfuls flour.
If preferred dissolve the chocolate for the cake in a very little sweet milk as for Chocolate Marbled Cake. Frost with the dark chocolate frosting or white frosting. Bake in a square tin. It is very pretty mixed with white cake when served.
1 pound of sugar, ½ pound butter.
1 pound of flour. 5 eggs.
1 good-sized cocoanut grated.
1 teaspoonful cream tartar. ½ teaspoonful soda. Beat the yolks with the sugar; the whites to a froth; add the milk of the cocoanut last.
1 cupful sugar.
2 cupfuls flour.
2 tablespoonfuls butter.
½ cupful milk.
2 teaspoonfuls baking powder.
2 cupfuls cocoanut soaked in milk (desiccated).
