This is a really wonderful fruit cake recipe, a recipe that was left to me by my old Grandmother. She used to bake her famous fruit cake regularly and we have all missed it since she passed away five years ago.
Well, the other week I was delighted to find her fruit cake recipe while I was going through some old family papers and I thought that you might like me to share it with you.
To make Grandma’s wonderful fruit cake, you will need the following ingredients:
- A cup of water
- A cup of sugar
- Four large eggs
- Two cups of dried fruit
- A teaspoon of baking soda
- A teaspoon of salt
- A cup of brown sugar
- Lemon juice
- A bottle of whisky
Right, if you have the ingredients to hand, let’s begin.
Sample the whisky to check for quality.
Take a large bowl.
Check the whisky again. To be sure it is the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer, beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add one teaspoon of sugar and beat again.
Make sure the whisky is still okay. Cry another tup.
Turn off the mixer.
Break two leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Mix on the turner.
If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the whisky to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Who cares?
Check the whisky.
Now sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Spoon. Of sugar or something. Whatever you can find.
Grease the oven. Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees.
Don’t forget to beat off the turner.
Throw the bowl out of the window, check the whisky again and go to bed.
You have got to love Grandmas like that. I wonder if she was pickled when she passed over.
