Family Story

This recipe was part of a cookbook I made of my mothers recipes after she passed three years ago. I scanned over 400 of her recipe cards and self published the book so family could have it. The boiled cake recipe has been in our family for generations; my mother substituted shortening for the lard that previous generations used. I substituted butter for the shortening but made it with shortening for her memorial. It was eaten first, even though it was a dessert. Everyone there had memories of the aroma of the cake boiling in my mother's kitchen.
