Fruit Cake

Yeah, I know, but this is good. I need to make some, but not this weekend, too much snow, not enough butter and eggs!

Heat oven to 275 degrees

3/4 lb softened butter
2 cups white sugar
beat together

separate 6 eggs and beat yolks well, then gradually mix together with 1 oz lemon extract and 3 cups flour

whip eggs whites and fold into mixture, one half at a time

1 lb pecans, 1 lb golden raisins, 1/2 lb glazed cherries, and 1/2 lb glazed pineapple - all cut into small pieces

Pour mix into lightly greased and floured loaf pans and banked approx 2 hours

Place shallow pan of water on bottom shelf of oven and keep water in the pan while baking
