Do you like Christmas cake? Lots of people do, in spite of the nasty reputation it has in comic circles. These wonderful fruit cakes generally take a long time to bake but Rosemary, my Australian friend, a wonderful new option.
Rosemary Renninson’s Christmas Cake
2 cups dried fruit of your choice
2 cups fruit juice poured over the fruit and allowed to soak over night
Add 2 cups self-raising flour
Pour into greased floured tin. Cook 2 hours at 250-300 degrees F.
It does take the two hours. Test with a needle for doneness- needle should come out clean.
Are you still not a fan? Abigail used her fruit cakes to get to the heart of David and ended up marrying him! Now isn’t that music♫ to your ears!!! ♥
1 Samuel 25: 17-19a-Now think it over and see what you can do, because disaster is hanging over our master and his whole household. He is such a wicked man that no one can talk to him.” Abigail acted quickly. She took two hundred loaves of bread, two skins of wine, five dressed sheep, five seahs of roasted grain, a hundred cakes of raisins and two hundred cakes of pressed figs, and loaded them on donkeys. Then she told her servants, “Go on ahead; I’ll follow you.”
Prayer: Lord, forgive us for being so picky over the bounty that you provide for us. In Christ. Amen.
