1 1/2 cups raisins, chopped
1 1/2 cups currents
3 cups mixed glace fruits and peels chopped
1 cup hard cider or wine, port, sherry or brandy
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup margarine
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs
1 cup sourdough starter
1 cup sliced almonds
4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt

Combine chopped fruits, peels with brandy and let set over night.

Cream sugars, shortening and spice until fluffy. Beat in eggs to
blend. Stir in starter. Add to fruit mixture with almonds. Sift
flour, soda and salt and blend into mixture.

Pour into two well greased and paper lined 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf
pans. Bake in a very slow oven, lowest rack about 275 for 2 1/2
hours or until tested done with wooden toothpick.

Remove from pans to cool on rack. remove paper. when cool, drizzle
a few tablespoons of brandy or hard cider over cakes. wrap well
and chill before slicing and serving.

I always substitute some drained and halved marachino cherries for
the glace fruit and use walnuts instead of almonds.

Most of all be satisfied with your starter for the recipes. Mine
has developed the right " tang " now which has made my sourdough
cookery quite enjoyable.
