Family Recipe Friday: Fruit Truck

Today's recipes come from the 1962 cookbook of the Women's Guild of the Salamonia, Indiana United Church of Christ of Christ (Evangelical and Reformed).

FRUIT TRUCK                                          Pearl LeMaster

Wash 1 lb. raisins: Stew in 2 c. water for 15 min.  Add 1 c. cold water, 1/2 c. lard, 2 c. sugar, 1 tsp. cloves, 1 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. soda, 1/4 c. flour.  Beat mixture, add 1 tsp. vanilla.  This makes a very large and also economical cake.  Bake 30 minutes in moderate oven and cover with caramel icing.

Pearl (SMITH) LeMASTER was my paternal grandaunt, the wife of Gerald Walker LeMASTER.  Pearl was born April 23, 1894 in Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of Samuel E. and Mary E. (BIBLER) SMITH.
