I found this recipe tucked in a folder of cake recipes that I had saved years ago.
I chuckled as I read it, and thought you too might get a laugh from "Best Bourbon Cake Ever!"
1 or 2 quarts of BOURBON
1 c. BUTTER
1 tsp. SUGAR
2 large EGGS
1 c. DRIED FRUIT
1 tsp. SODA
Before you start:
Sample the bourbon to check for quality. Good isn't it? Now, go ahead.
Select a large mixing bowl, measuring cup, etc.
Check rum again! It must be just right.
To be sure bourbon is of the highest quality, pour one level cup of bourbon into a glass, and drink it as fast as you can.
With an electric mixer beat 1 cup a butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add 1 seaspoon of thugar and beat again.
Meanwhile, make sure that the bourbon is of the finest quality. Try another cup.
Open second quart if necessary.
Add 2 arge leggs, 2 cupps fried druit and beat til high.
If druit gets stuck in beaters, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample bourbon again, checking for the tonscisticity.
Next sift 3 cups of pepper or salt - it really doesn't matter.
Sameple bourbon again... sift 1/2 pint of lemon juice.
Fold in chopped butter and strained nuts.
Add 1 babblespoon of brown thugar, or whatever color you can find.
Grease oven and turn cake pan to 350 gredees.
Now, pour the whole mess into the coven and ake.
Check the bourbon again, and bo to ged!
