Ingrients & Directions

3 Eggs
1 c Honey
1/2 c Shortening (suet, marg,
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Ground cinnamon
1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
1 (to your taste) Tbsp ground
-ginger (up to 3)
1 tb Mango Madness or other fruit
-based hot sauce, plus
2 ts Baking powder
2 c Flour
1 Carrot (grated)
1 Apple (grated)
1 c Raisins
1 c Nutmeats (I use walnuts)
1 c Chopped dates (optional)
1/2 c Fresh grated ginger or
-candied ginger

Mix first three ingredients together and blend well. To this add the
spices, hot sauce and baking powder – blend well. Add the flour and then
fold in the rest of the stuff. This makes a pretty thick batter.

Grease and flour a ring mold. Pour in batter and bake at 400 degrees
Farenheight for about an hour or until set. Do not overbake.

(Purists can put the batter in a pudding mold and boil it for 3 hours!)

Cake keeps well if wrapped and stored in a cool place. I like to wrap it in
cheesecloth soaked in cream sherry and then wrap in aluminum foil but this
can be omitted.
