These recipes don't specify plain or self-rising flour. How do I tell which one I need?


Feb 20, 2014

I tried it again, this time instead of 1 1/4 tablespoons of Milk I used 2 tblspoons of milk and it wasn't so dry. I also made them into cupcakes. It takes 45min instead of 1 1/2 hour for cupcakes.

I made the main recipe, it is a little dry as a cake I topped it with honey when I served it. the first time I made it I made a mistake and only put in half the flour. It had the consistancy of bread pudding but it was absolutely delicious, much better than when I made it with the "correct amount" of flour. I am going to try the other versions that readers have posted to see how they turn out.

Love the recipe BUT Why does the work bar say "Remove Recipe?" I want to add it to my recipe box. As a Christian, whomever planned this disgusting joke should be reprimanded and not allowed to work in this area again.

When I was growing up, this was called a Scripture cake as irwind45150 commented. When mom and I baked it, it was my job to look up the verses and read them aloud. Thanks for the reminder of good times.

The recipe lists 2 eggs, and the Bible references say 6. Which is correct?

I have this recipe that was handed down from my Great Grandmother, but each item had a "bible verse" attached. Where are the bible verses? Here is how it was passed down to me. Bible Cake 1 C butter (Judges 5:25) 3 C flour (I Kings 4:22) 1 C sugar (Jeremiah 6:20) 2 C raisins (I Samuel 30:12) 2 C figs (I Samuel 30:12) 1 C water (Genesis 24:17) 1 C almonds (Genesis 43:11) 6 eggs (Isaiah 10:14) 1 tsp honey (Exodus 16:31) pinch of salt (I Kings 10:10) Follow Solomons Advice for making good boys and girls and you will have a good cake. PROVERBS 23:17
