Old Fashioned Fruit Cake #4

3/4 c Butter

1/2 c Molasses

1/2 c Grape juice

3/4 c Sour milk

1/2 lb Candied pineapple

1 lb Candied cherries

4 ts Cocoa

1/2 cup of each). Mix the above, cook in a greased iron

skillet with wax paper lining, cook on 300 degrees. This cake freezes well. My mother made 3 of the above cakes shortly before Thanksgiving, one was cut for Thanksgiving, one for Christmas and one for New Year`s. They were placed in a cupboard on the back porch. As we brought in the wood for the night it was stocked on the porch near this old cupboard. (My mother`s Grandmother Curtis, Granny was a descendant of Richard Curtis the first Baptist Preacher in this area from South Carolina). My what an aroma! And the taste was there too.
