A dense cake, similar to a fruitcake that we have each Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter! This recipe has been in my family for generations! Don't be turned off by a cake using sausage as an ingredient!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl.
  2. You will bake it like a fruit cake.
  3. Fill pan almost full (I use an angel food cake pan).
  4. Cover with paper last hour of baking.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 1-1/2 hours.
  6. Bake until toothpick in center comes out clean.
  7. Cool; wrap in waxed paper or foil.
  8. In olden days, cakes were wrapped in wine-dampened cloth to keep them moist and mellow.
  9. Store in air-tight container in cool place.
  10. This recipe has been passed down from my native American ancestors: my Grandpa was half Cherokee, half Cheyenne.

My mother always made this cake for Christmas, but she made a Burnt Sugar Frosting to frost the cake & it was always out of this world. I miss my mama right now.
