Grandmother William’s Labkuchan


(all fruits can be combined and can simply use a candied fruit mix)

1 quart molasses

1 qt. sour cream

½ pound citron

½ pound almonds

¼ pound orange

¼ pound lemon

2 tsp nutmeg

1 tablespoon cloves

1 tablespoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons soda

1 pound brown sugar

3 qt. flour


Batter must be very stiff. Chop candied fruit to smaller pieces. Chop the almonds but not too fine. Mix the nuts with the candied fruit and flour and soda. Mix with rest of the ingredients and let stand over night.
