    lol No, a poem would be appropriately placed in the Poetry Forum.

    This is an actual recipe which is appropriately placed in the "Dessert" section.

    As for you getting "some King James," are you referring to the Bible or to this recipe?

    If you mean the latter, the recipe does not stipulate the "King James Bible." In fact, no particular Bible version is mentioned in the recipe; but I did provide the scripture from the KJV.

    I wonder too....I've never had it...just ran across it and decided to share it.


    But, from the ingredients, it sounds like it might be pretty good!

    Well now, as for the "soul and spirit," if one is a Bible believer, then yes.


    As for the "great taste," I'll have to try baking it one day.

    I enjoyed this recipe, but here are a few caveats: Fern must have made a typo, because 1 cup milk is nowhere near enough liquid to moisten the ingredients. I followed the suggestion of the previous reviewer and added 3 eggs, and there were STILL pockets of dry flour! I think all in all, I used 3 eggs, and 2 1/4 cups milk. Because of the lack of fat, this cake would not keep that well without drying out (it's interesting, because other scripture cakes have oil added). To increase keeping qualities, I'd reduce amount of sugar to 1 cup, and add 1 cup honey. I added ½ cup chopped dates (Deut. 34:3), and grated zest of 2 oranges (Deut. 33:14). Some additional scriptural refs: the raisin reference in the recipe is incorrect, it is actually 1 Samuel 30:12. I also prefer the salt ref of Job 6:6, and for the baking soda, the best ref is 1 Cor. 5:6 (although if you're Jewish you'll have to find another one!).
