PORK CAKE

An old time recipe

An old time recipe.
From 1912:
One pound of pork, without lean, chopped fine; pour half a pint of boiling water over it. One pound of raisins, chopped fine. Mix with a little flour after chopping; two cups of brown sugar, one cup of molasses, one teaspoonful of soda stirred into the molasses, two teaspoonfuls of cinnamon, half a teaspoonful of cloves and the same of nutmeg.
Put in enough flour to make it as thick as common loaf cake batter. Bake two hours in a slow oven.
