Directions

1
Mix first four ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil again, and then cool. When cool add the final 7 ingredients, and mix well.
2
Fill greased muffin cups or loaf pans(fill muffin cups 2/3 full). Bake for 1 hour, then turn off the oven. Allow to sit in the oven for 15 minutes. Then cool another 15 minutes out of the oven, but still in the pan. Thus the indicated cook time of 1 1/2 hours. Store in waxed paper or tin foil. Freezes well.
