Amalgamation Cake (#9)

Billie Neal Recipe

By Billie Neal WildExpectation

This recipe comes from a 1968 recipe book titled,"Favorite Recipes From Church of GOD Ladies". Each of the recipes has the ladies' name and home town and I will include this with the recipe and if you know or are related to this person, I would really like to know. The recipes I post from this cookbook are ones I have tried and really like or are unusual due to ingredients or possibly due to the number of recipes with the same name but are different in some way. I hope you enjoy.
I know some the recipes are really lacking in some or all areas, but I am posting them as they are in the cookbook

    I have to, but I don't know if this was the recipe or not. I didn't realize until I finished posting it that it is also a jam cake. Oh well, I guess #8 is enough.

    Billie this is the same icing as the Used What I Had Cake. But this cake looks chocolate and there are no pecans or raisins in this icing in the picture but at least I have in instructions for the icing. Thanks
