Pioneer Cooking: Sausage Cake

Pioneers were very creative when it came to inventing recipes to use up all the leftovers. Here is an interesting recipe, using traditional recipes, but winding up with a nontraditional result.

Sausage Cake

Into a mixing bowl break up 1/2 pound sausage and beat in one cup white sugar, adding 1/4 teaspoon salt and cup buttermilk. Next sprinkle over the mixture teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice; mix thoroughly. Sift 1 1/4 cup flour with teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon soda; blend in slowly. Have 1/2 cup raisins soaking in warm water. Drain them and lightly flour; add to mixture along with 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Pour into a buttered and floured 9" iron skillet and bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes to an hour. Serve warm.
