This recipe came from my mother and I have been

making it since I got married in 1957. I do not know where she got the recipe but , I remember her making it when I was about 10 years old. At one time I saw the recipe in Good Housekeeping or Better Homes and Gardens. I did not cut it out then....but it had to come from someplace! This will not keep like fruit cake, so eat it up or wrap it in a damp cloth.
