4 spoons of lemon extract
2 cups of white grapes
1/2 to 1 cup of candied pineapple
1/2 to 1 cup of candied cherries
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 pound of pecan, coarsely chopped
1 pound of sugar flour
1 pound of flour (4 all-purpose cups or 4 1/2 cups of flour)
1 pound of butter or margarine
1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
Butter with cream, sugar and lemon extract. Sift the flour once, then measure. Sift twice more by adding baking powder and salt to the last sieve.
Add the eggs, one at a time, to the cream mixture, alternating with the flour; beat well after each addition. This makes a very stiff dough that will probably have to be beaten by hand.
Then add nuts, candied fruits and raisins that have been coated with a little flour. Cook in a large round pan that has been lined with brown paper and greased. Bake at 150 C for about 2 hours or until fully cooked.
