3 cups sugar
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. allspice

Raisins, walnuts, pecans all optional (I like walnuts)
We pour into individual loaf pans, but the recipe calls for 2 greased 9x5x3. Bake at 350 deg. 60 to 70 min. for big loaf pans….a little less for individual pans depending on your oven. (or 6 mini loaf pans)
Cool for ten minutes then loosen sides and place on cooling rack. Try to keep your hands off for however many cooling minutes it takes for a clean slice….Toppings: Ice Cream, whipped cream, your pleasure
Bake the individual pans and give one to each of your friends, then be prepared to bake them the rest of your life.
