INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHITE FRUIT CAKE

Cream butter, sugar, and almond extract. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add remaining dry ingredients alternately with pineapple juice. (Make three dry and three liquid additions, combining lightly after each).
Add floured fruit, mix well.

BAKING
Place batter in prepared cake pan/pans.

Put a small pan filled with water in the oven. (To prevent the cake from drying too much)
Place pan/pans in oven.

Bake at 275F for 2 hours (Test to see if cake is baked by inserting a long skewer or knitting needle into cake. If the item comes out clean, the cake is cooked. If batter is attached to the item, the cake needs to bake longer.)
