2 – cups sugar

6 – eggs

1 – cup butter or margarine

1 – heaping teaspoonful of baking powder

1/4 – teaspoon salt

Mix this fruitcake batter as you would any other type of cake batter and then add:

1 – teaspoon allspice

1 – teaspoon cloves

1 – teaspoon cinnamon

1 – cup chopped nuts of your choice. We generally use pecans since they grow locally.

Divide this mixture evenly between two square cake pans or bread loaf pans. Bake in a preheated oven of 350 degrees until done, this may be approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Bake till done and then allow to cool before cutting layers in half horizontally.
