DRIED APPLE FRUIT CAKE
MRS. W. H. ECKHART
Take three cups of dried apples, and soak over night; then chop them fine, and cook slowly for three hours in three cups of baking molasses, stirring often; let cool over night. Then take two cups of sugar, one cup of butter, three eggs, four cups of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, two teaspoons of ground cinnamon, two teaspoons of ground cloves, one grated nutmeg, two cups of raisins, one cup of citron (cut fine), and one pound of figs (chopped).
Lastly, add the cooked apples. Stir all together, and bake as you would other fruit cake for two hours or longer in rather slow oven.
