  1. Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Mix peel, juice and egg,
    and add to dry ingredients. Mix just to moisten.
  2. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes.
    Cool. Wrap and store overnight. Hint: To avoid nuts and berries from sinking
    to bottom, add part of the flour mixture to nuts and berries before adding
    to batter.
