This is a collection of recipes passed down by the Houghton sisters ~
Barbara, Dorcas & Frances.

An idea that became a reality when family bonded together to gather recipes from the past. I would like to thank everyone for their submissions. Many a memory we have from these tasty treats and hopefully by putting them all together ~
many more can be made.

White Fruitcake

Dorothy-Ann's [Stiles] White Christmas Fruit Cake

I c butter

½ pound of each:

white raisins, mixed peel, mixed fruit peel

1 ½ cups sugar

6 beaten eggs

2 ½ cups flour

2 tsp almond flavouring

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

juice and rind of 1 lemon

blanched almonds, red and green cherries, pineapple rings

Put all fruit pieces into a large bowl and cover with flour – just enough just

to dust all pieces individually so they won’t fall to the bottom of the cake.

Cream butter and sugar gradually in bowl, add eggs, add grated rind and juice of lemon, almond flavouring, then sifted dry ingredients.

Add fruit, which has been dusted with extra flour.

Pour into a round tube cake pan

Bake at 275-300 for 2 ½ - 3 hours

Store in a cool dry area – well wrapped in foil.
