Baking Fruit Cake with my Mother-in-law
White Fruit Cake
1/2 lb white pineapple
1/4 lb red pineapple
1/4 lb green pineapple
1/2 lb cherries
1 1/2 quarts nuts (6 cups)
1 lb. white raisins (dates can also be added)
1/2 lb butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, then 1 cup flour.
Mix other cup of flour with the fruits and nuts. Then mix in batter. Batter will be stiff. Bake 2 1/2 hours at 250*F Place a large sheet cake pan of water on the lowest rack in the oven and bake the cakes in the middle of the oven. The water will keep the cakes moist and ward off burning.
Now to wait from Thanksgiving! They smelled DIVINE!
