Bible Cake

Designed by Freepik

This recipe was given to my dad by an old friend who found it in a Family Bible. The recipe was dated 1725.

To find the ingredients, you need to look up the Chapters and Verses in a Bible or online. I haven’t actually made this myself, or tried looking them up but have always intended to. I’ll get back to you when I get round to trying it out. I believe it’s a fruit cake but I might be wrong.

One clue: Ingredient no 5, 6 ozs Nahum Chapter 3 Verse 12 is Figs

To be eaten at Hallowmas (2nd November – All Saints Day)

Bible Cake

Prep Time: 24 hours

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 24 hours

This is a cake recipe found in an old Bible dated 1725. Unfortunately, it doesn't say the oven temperature or how long you should cook it for. At a guess I would say 160 deg C for a couple of hours in a deep lined and greased cake tin. I think it's probably a fruit cake
