Vintage Betty Crocker Fruitcake Recipe

A few weeks ago I lugged over a box of recipes from my great aunties house. All of the recipes in this box are vintage ones that she cut out of magazines, booklets and newspapers many years ago. They are all yellowed, tattered and faded.

In the box I found this recipe from Betty Crocker to make their quickest ever Fruitcake...its pretty tattered but thought I would share this vintage recipe with all of my blog readers.

Betty Crocker Fruitcake Recipe

1 pkg. Betty Crocker Date Bar Mix
2/3 c. hot water
3 large eggs
1/4 c. Gold Medal Flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. light molasses
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg and allspice
1 c. Diamond Walnuts
1 c. chopped candied fruits
1 c. raisins

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease & flour a loaf pan. Combine date filling from Date Bar Mix Pkg. with hot water in large bowl. Add crumbly mix, eggs, flour, baking powder, molasses & spices. Blend well. Fold in walnuts & fruit. Pour into prepared pan. Bake about 1 hour and 20 minutes or until done. Cool. Wrap Well. Store in cool place for 2-3 days before slicing.
