1 cup milk
1 Tbsp orange rind, grated

1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ginger

2 Tbsp flour
juice of 3 lemons
1 cup sugar
1 can pineapple (20 oz)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease and flour 3 9-inch layer cake pans. Cream butter and sugar

Add allspice and ginger to remaining batter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon
flour over the raisins and nuts to coat, then add to batter and
mix well. Spread spiced batter into remaining third pan.

Bake layers at 350F. for 30 minutes, or until cake tests down and
sides shrink from pan. Invert on wire rack and allow to cool.

When completely cool, spread fruit filling between layers and
thinly over the top and side of cake, using a flat-bladed knife
to spread evenly. (Place the fruit/spice layer in the middle when
stacking layers.) Cover top and side of cake with the coconut.

For fruit filling: pineapple should be crushed & drained. Combine
all ingredients in top half of a double boiler over, not in,
simmering water and cook, stirring frequently, until mixture
thickens. It should be quite thick. Remove from heat and allow to
cool, stirring occasionally. Serves 8 people
