Have you heard of scripture cake before? Whether you have or not, you are going to love the flavors and story behind this cake. Scripture cake can be made using a recipe that references foods found in the Bible. So, for example, the recipe ingredients would read "1.5 cups of Judges 5:25 (last part)." When you read the scripture reference, you'll see that this verse references curdled milk. In this case curdled milk is interpreted as butter, so the first ingredient is 1.5 cups of butter!

Our recipe includes the Bible verse references, but we also provide the ingredients list for your convenience. Our quick and delicious recipe comes together in no time at all, and the flavors are absolutely delicious. The cake is fluffy and sweet, and it has just the right amount of sugary glaze on top. You'll love making this cake, and sharing the origins of the recipe, with your family!

  3. Fold in raisins and almonds. Mix well. Pour into greased pan. Bake about 60 minutes, making sure not to overbake, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 20 minutes while preparing icing.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was not familiar with what scripture cake was before now, but the concept is really clever! The execution is as well - the cake is moist, the fruits and nuts make it full of flavor, and I very much enjoy the sweetness of the glaze.

Talk about a sweet cake! Delicious. I'd eat that again for sure.

This was really yummy! The cake has great texture, and the glaze is very nice.
