1/4 c genesis 18:8
GARNISH:

Steps:

  • 1. Search the scripture for your ingredients: This is the first scripture to look up. Key Words:butter, sweet cane, eggs, fine flour, salt, leavened, sweet cinnamon, spices, milk, almonds, figs, and raisins
  • 2. Chop up your dates for cake.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and honey. Add egg yolks. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • 4. Add desired spices, such as cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk.
  • 5. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter.
  • 6. Coat the chopped figs, raisins, and almonds with flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom, and stir them into the mixture.
  • 7. Pour into your cake pan and bake in a well-greased 10-inch tube pan for 2 hours.
  • 8. For Burnt Jeremiah Syrup: In a 2-quart saucepan over low heat, melt sugar, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. After sugar melts, continue cooking, stirring continuously, until it is a deep golden brown. Add water and cook, stirring frequently, until smooth. Remove from the heat, add butter and stir till until it melts; allow to cool. Drizzle over cooled scripture cake and garnish with sliced almonds. ----[Why is it called Burnt Jeremiah Syrup? "And if I say, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name, then there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with forbearing, and I cannot contain." Jeremiah 20:9] Burnt Jeremiah Syrup is from:gratefulprayerthankfulheart.blogspot.com
  • 9. Here is a great verse to share with those who are helping to prepare this cake: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man[woman] of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
  • 10. There is a bakery called Simply Fruit Cakes in the UK that sells these Scripture Cakes in beautiful tins. Her motto is: Baked from the Heart. Here is the link:http://www.simplyfruitcakes.co.uk/index.php
  • 11. Here is a little history I found on hushpuppynation.com: Scripture cake was also known as "Bible Cake," "Scriptural Cake" and "Old Testament Cake," and was extremely popular in the latter part of the nineteenth century, especially in the southern Appalachians. The cake was meant as a way to teach young girls baking and Bible verses. The earliest recipe for this cake I have been able to find was published in the Atlanta Constitution on June 27, 1897. Some researchers believe the cake dates to the late 1700s in England or Ireland, while others claim the cake a favorite of Dolly Madison, wife of U.S. president James Madison.

Top Asked Questions

What does the Bible say about making cake?
Rather than typical ingredients, the traditional recipe included a list of Bible verses instead, requiring the baker to call on her knowledge of scripture to make the cake (or at least compel her to thumb through the Old Testament). "One cup of Judges 5:25," for instance, meant that you needed a cup of butter.
What does the Bible say about raisins in cake?
The Scripture verses that mine shows are: I Samuel 30:12 raisins; Nahum 3:12 figs; Judges 4:19 milk rather than water; Numbers 17:8 almonds; I Samuel 14:25 honey; Amos 4:5 baking powder; II Chronicles 9:9 spices to taste; Jeremiah 17:11 eggs. Also from the recipe I have the cake is to be baked in a well-greased tube pan at 300 degrees for 2 hours.
What was the name of the Old Testament cake?
Scripture cake was also known as “Bible Cake,” “Scriptural Cake” and “Old Testament Cake,” and was extremely popular in the latter part of the nineteenth century, especially in the southern Appalachians. The cake was meant as a way to teach young girls baking and Bible verses.
How long does it take to bake a scripture cake?
Add to butter mixture; beat at low speed until well combined. Stir in chopped apples, figs, raisins, honey, almonds, and remaining ⅔ cup walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake in 350 degrees F. oven until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes.
