GERMAN PORK CAKE

2 cups sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup sour milk
2 cups roasted pork cracklings (see note)
1 pound raisins
1 pound maraschino cherries, chopped
1 pound walnuts or pecans, chopped
4 eggs
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour

Mix ingredients in order given. Grease and flour three loaf pans. Fill with equal amounts of dough. Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes.

Note: Cracklings are what is left after melting down fat from a hog and pouring off the liquid lard into a container to use for pie crusts, etc. The dry parts are the cracklings. To roast cracklings for this and other recipes, put on a cookie sheet and roast at 350F for 30 minutes to dry further.)
