Bible Cake

bible, cake, scripture, cakeI didn't make a traditional Christmas Cake this year but I did make a very traditional Bible Cake.  If you don't want to search for the ingredients in a Bible I've added the translation at the end of the recipe.  The interpretation of a few of the ingredients are a little vague but are generally held to be figs or dates and common fruit cake spices.
