Recipes from The Inglenook Cookbook
 by The Sisters of the Brethren Church (1906)



 Take 1/2 pound figs and stew quite tender. Cream together 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 2 teaspoonfuls of butter, then add 1 egg well beaten, 1 teaspoonful of soda dissolved in 1 cup of sweet milk, 3 cups of sifted flour, and with the last cup mix 2 teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar. Make your frosting with the white of 1 egg and sugar, and spread on the cake. Then put on a layer of figs well mashed, then another layer of cake, frosting and figs, until all are added. The last layer is simply frosted. Raw bananas sliced fine, and used instead of figs, make a fine cake.
