Show and Tell Friday

Does this bring back memories? As a small child, I had a set of these little praying children hanging on the wall above my bed. A couple of years ago I was thrilled to find this set. It is hanging above the toddler bed in what our grandchildren call the "Nursery".

Scripture Cake Review

Well, here is my opinion of the Scripture Cake made from
the recipe I posted earlier:

The flavor of this cake was very good with a pleasing taste from the cinnamon and other spices. The raisins and figs were not overpowering as I thought they might. I was however, disappointed with the texture ~ a little too dry and crumbly. The Burnt Sugar syrup was the BEST! It made more than what I thought was needed to drizzle on the top, so I warmed the extra in the microwave to pour on each slice when serving. I think the syrup is what made the cake special.

This was a fun recipe to make and produced a very pretty cake, but I will search a bit more to find a moister version.

Scripture Cake with Burnt Jeremiah Syrup

I got the idea to try this cake from my blogging friend Lady Farmer Parables. It was popular in the late 1800's as a way to teach young girls baking skills and Bible verses. I decided to try this recipe after searching and finding many variations.
