    A White Circle Book Toronto I.S.B.N. 0 00 682482


    Temperature: 300° F. Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes

    1 cup margarine or shortening
    1 cup honey
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla (real, not artificial)
    1/2 teaspoon almond flavouring
    4 eggs, well beaten
    1 cup raisins, plumped and chopped
    1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
    3 cups plus 6 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Cream together margarine or shortening and honey; add flavourings and well beaten eggs.
    Add raisins and nuts.
    Add sifted dry ingredients in three additions.
    Pour into a square cake pan 8” x 8” or loaf pan 9” x 5” x 3” lined with oiled heavy brown paper.
    Bake in slow oven; when cool, put away to age for a few days.
    Yield: 3 lbs.

    Notes from me:
    “Heavy brown paper” refers, no doubt, to the old paper grocery bags; use parchment paper or maybe brown parcel wrapping paper.
    Plump raisins by boiling water and putting the raisins in for 5 minutes; pour off the water using a sieve.

    As the old queen bee said to the new queen bee: "We’re not going to fight, so I’ll take the rest of my workers and buzz off!”
