Scripture Cake

Cake Recipe #3 in the "Happy Birthday Mrs. Tairy Greene" series! This one is rather challengin as it requires not only that you have the recipe, but a Bible handy as well. Not sure if it needs to be a specific translation. I suppose King James or Revised Standard versions would be suitable.

I found it in a centennial cookbook from my Great-Granny's church, Zion Lutheran. I am curious about what the ingredients actually are. Maybe I'll give this one a shot myself...

1/2 lb. Judges 5:25
1/2 lb. Jeremiah 6:20
1 tbsp. I Samuel 14:25
3 of Jeremiah 17:11, well beaten (10 bucks says this ingredient is eggs!)
1/2 lb. of I Samuel 30:12
2 oz. Numbers 17:8, chopped & blanched (almonds? walnuts?)
1/2 lb. Nahum 3:12
1 lb. I Kings 4:22 (equal 4 c. flour) (cheater! you gave it away!)
2 tsp. Amos 4:5
3 tbsp. Judges 4:19 (last clause)
1 pinch Leviticus 2:13

Oven temp: 350 degrees

Pan size: 9x13 bakin pan

How to:
Season to taste with II Chronicles 9:9. Note 1/2 pound is 1 cup except in I Kings. Look up the Bible passages and you will have the ingredients of a Scripture Cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour in a greased and floured 9x13 pan.
