Soak three cups of dried apples overnight in cold water enough to swell them. Chop them in the morning and put them on the fire with three cups of molasses; stew until almost soft; add a cup of seedless raisins and; stew a few moments; when cold add three cups of flour, one cup of butter, three eggs and a teaspoon of soda. Bake in a steady oven. This will make two good sized panfuls. Raisins may be omitted, also spices to taste may be added.
