Scripture Cake Recipe

by Joanne
(Ontario)


I came across this cake some time ago. It was first popular in the 1800's. The recipe is written as a riddle that can be solved by finding ingredients in the Bible (Use a King James Version.) This is fun to do with the kids and a great way for them to learn Scriptures.

This is a dense fruitcake. It's sort of similar to a spicy German Koenigskuchen - a dense cake with fruits.

The answers are at the end of the recipe:

PART 1:
3/4 cup Psalms 55:21
1 cup Jeremiah 6:2
3 Jeremiah 17:11
1/4 cup Judges 4:19
1 tbsp. I Samuel 14:25

PART 2:
2 1/4 cups Leviticus 6:15
1/4 tsp. Leviticus 2:13
1 tbsp. Amos 4:5
1 tsp. II Chronicles 9:9

PART 3:
1 cup I Samuel 30:12
1 cup Numbers 13:23
½ cup Numbers 17:8

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour 4 mini loaf pans.

PART 1:
In large mixer bowl, beat Psalms 55:21 until light and creamy. Add Jeremiah 6:2 and beat till fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add Jeremiah 17:11, one at a time, beating well after each. Mix in Judges 4:19 and I Samuel 14:25.

PART 2:
In separate bowl, sift together all ingredients listed in PART 2. Remove 1/4 cup and set aside. Add half of remaining mixture to mixer bowl and blend thoroughly. Add remaining half of mixture and mix until well blended to make batter.

PART 3:
In separate bowl, combine ingredients listed in PART 3 plus the 1/4 cup of PART that was set aside. Toss to mix. Gently fold this into batter.

Fill loaf pans about 3/4 full and bake for about 35 - 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool on rack for 15 minutes and remove from pans. Cool completely before serving. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Enjoy this fun novelty cake. It feeds the spirit and the body!
