  Categories: Cheesecakes, Fruits, Chocolate
       Yield: 3 servings
     3/4 c  Butter
       1 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Molasses
     1/2 c  Grape juice
     3/4 c  Sour milk
       1 c  Blackberry jam
       1 c  Watermelon rind preserves
       1 c  Fig preserves
       3 c  Plain flour
       4 c  Pecans; chopped
       2 ts Soda
       8    Eggs
       2 sm Raw apples; chopped
     1/2 ts Salt (opt.)
       1    Raisins
     1/2 lb Candied pineapple
       1 lb Candied cherries
       4 ts Cocoa
   Preparation : I added strawberries, peach and pear (about
   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
   (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. Mother of Ilda Jackson, Hazle White Ruby M. Pray
