  I found the recipe in the St.Paul newspaper Sunday supplement section 
  around 1960 or so.  It has no egg yolks, no shortening. It had Brazil 
  nuts wrapped in whole dates, glaced cherries and white wine. I always 
  wrapped the fruit cakes in brandy cloths . I stored them in the 
  refrigerator. The cake was beautiful when cut. It was also moist and 
  didn't fall apart. It had no citron. 

  I have been trying to find this recipe for a few years now, since I 
  lost it. 


Hello Sandi,

I could not locate a recipe with that name, nor could I locate a recipe with the exact ingredients you list. Sorry.
Below is another fruit cake recipe that you might like. It, too, has no eggs and no shortening.

   1/4 lb. almonds

  nice site, I am looking for information on Gold Metal 
  Flour company and its founders. can't seem to find anything 
  out there in cyber land. 
  and also, I had a recipe from the White Satin Sugar company 
  since 1967, which was a favorite, it was a butter cake,and 
  I lost it.
  it was one of the best cakes I ever ate. 
  very dense but nice. rich cake. 
  will look thru your archives.  

Hello Whitacre,

The history of Gold Medal flour is the history of General Mills. They changed the name of their flour to that after it won a gold medal in 1880. See these websites:

Kansas Flour

I could not locate any White Satin Sugar recipes at all.
