Two and a half pounds white sugar,
one pound butter,
one pound flour,
dozen eggs.

Beat eggs, add sugar and butter creamed together, and flour.
Add two pounds currants, one and one-half pounds raisins, and one pound shredded citron, dredged in flour, and two ounces each of allspice and cinnamon, and one ounce grated nutmeg.
Bake in a very slow oven about five hours and watch constantly, as it will burn easily.
