When I first read this card, I was like… poison nut cake? What?
I did eventually figure out that this says Orange Raisin Nut Cake (Goldie) as opposed to poison nut cake.
1/4 cup shortening creamed with
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup raisins, dates or figs, chopped
1/4 cup nuts
grated rind of one orange
Sift 1 cup flour with 1/2 tsp. soda and 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour or butter milk
Bake in 8 X 8 tin in oven at 375.
While warm spread with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup orange juice.
The recipe doesn’t say how long to bake it for, so start out at 25-30 minutes, and use a toothpick in the center. Don’t bake until it’s dry, but some crumb comes up with the toothpick.
