Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

1  c  Brown sugar
1/3  c  Shortening (that meant
    -crisco then)
1 1/4  c  Raisins
1/2  c  Chopped dates
1  t  Salt
1  t  Ground nutmeg
1  t  Groung cinnamon
2  c  All-purpose flour
1  t  Baking soda

This could be called a heavy fruitcake. Boil sugar, shortening, raisins, dates, salt and spices for 3 min. Remove from heat and let cool. When cool, add flour and baking soda that have veen sifted together; beat well. Pour into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 min. This was a VERY popular recipe at the Oakland Navy yard during the era. And what I find is a good recipe to make for camping trips today. There isn't much in it to spoil. You could even make this on your upcoming camping trip!
