Dhahran Theatre Group Cookbook, 1993


2 Lbs. flour
2 Lbs. sugar
2 Lbs. butter
19 eggs
5 Lbs. raisins
1 1/2 Lbs. currents
1 1/2 Lbs. citron
1 Cup brandy
1 Cup molasses
2 Teaspoons nutmeg
5 Teaspoons cloves, mace and cinnamon
2 Teaspoons soda
1 1/2Teaspoons salt


Beat the sugar and butter together. Add the eggs, one at a time, without beating. Next, add the brandy, alternately with the flour, soda, spices, and salt that you’ve sifted together. Add the molasses. Gently sprinkle in all 8 lbs of fruit, stirring all the while.

Bake in a 350? F oven, in a round “pan de mie” pan for 35 minutes (about 1 Cup of batter). Everybody loves it -- I hope you will too!
