Probably the last place you'd expect to find a cake recipe is in the Bible. The ingredients are there in its pages. You'll enjoy hunting up the references and the mixing is simple. It's a delicious fruit cake.
Start here: Reference No. 1: Judges 5:25 "She brought forth butter in a lordly dish."
Note: Leaven means baking powder.
Beat 1, 2 and 3 to cream; add No. 4, one at a time, still beating, then 5, 6 and 7. Beat again. Add 8, 9, 10 and 11, having already mixed them together, and lastly, 12. Bake in a slow over at 275 degree F for 1 hour.
Hint about II Chronicles: I use clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger or I use allspice to taste.
Source: I've had this recipe for over 30 years and found it in an old church cookbook.
