Bible Cake (D)
Source: Jewish Theological Seminary Website
Serves: 10 to 12

A. 1/2 cup Judges 5:25 (Milk)
B. 2 cups Jeremiah 6:20 (Sugar)
C. 2 tbsp. I Samuel 14:25 (Honey)
D. 6 Jeremiah 17:11 (Eggs)
E. 1-1/2 cups I Kings 5:2 (Flour, sifted)
F. 2 tsp. Amos 4:5 (Baking powder)
G. 4 tsp. II Chronicles 9:9 (Spice, likely cinnamon)
H. A pinch of Leviticus 2:13 (Salt)
I. 1/2 cup Judges 4:19 (Milk)
J. 2 cups (chopped) Nahum 3:12 (Figs)
K. 2 cups I Samuel 30:12 (Raisins)
L. 2 cups (chopped) Numbers 13:23 (Grapes/Pomegranates... probably pomegranate, but not really sure but that's an awful lot of pomegranate seeds!)

Cream together A, B, C and the yolks of D.

Sift together E, F, G, and H.

Combine the above together with I.

Add J, K and L. Add in stiffly beaten whites of D.

Bake in a well-greased rectangular 13"x 9" pan at 325°F for an hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Serve for Shavuot with ice cream. We couldn't find a biblical verse which mentioned ice cream.

Poster's Notes:
Here's what I figured out for the Bible Cake. The original recipe is on the JTS website. The ingredients for this cake are hidden in Bible verses. Study first, then bake, then eat.
