Gathering of the Blogs

Ok, here is my contribution to the Gathering of the Blogs. My last name means "muddy hill". My family originally hailed from Scotland. I say originally because they left Scotland, or rather were exiled as they were horse theives. They settled in Ireland and started immigrating to the US in, oh, the early 1700's. That's all I got. oh, that and this recipe: Dundee Cake
6oz butter or margarine 6oz caster sugar 3 eggs 8oz plain flour Pinch of salt 1/2 tsp baking powder 2oz blanched split almonds (for top) 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon Pinch of grated nutmeg Grated rind of 1 lemon 2oz chopped mixed peel 4oz sultanas 4oz currants 4oz raisins A little milk (if necessary) Cream fat and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Sieve dry ingredients. Add gradually with mixed fruit, adding milk if necessary (mixture must be stiff). Place almonds on top of cake in well greased (8 in) cake tin. Bake: 325°F 2-21/4 hours oh, and I stole this Cool pic. from Ith.
