|A delicious and never fail moist white cake and half the work of a regular Christmas cake. Freezes well.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
12 oz. sultana raisins
8 oz. halved red glace cherries
(or use half red and half green cherries)
Cream butter and sugar. Add beaten eggs and orange juice. Sift four and baking powder. Reserve 1/3 cup of flour mixture and toss with raisins and cherries (This will keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.) Add floured raisins and cherries to dough. Bake in a large greased, wax paper lined loaf pan at 300 F. for 2 1/2 hours. Don’t serve until several days old. Wrap in plastic or foil wrap and store in a sealed container.
The only thing worse than being old and bent is being young and broke.
