The gumdrop cake has been a holiday tradition in our family for almost 4 generations. The recipe has been adapted and changed over the years; this one is my favorite.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease 2 loaf pans.
  2. Place raisins into a large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium; boil until raisins are plump, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Stir 1 cup flour into raisins and add gum drops and walnuts; mix to coat ingredients with flour. Beat butter, brown sugar, and eggs together in a separate bowl until creamy; mix in applesauce. Stir remaining 5 cups flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice into batter. Dissolve baking soda and hot water in a small bowl and stir into batter. Fold floured raisin mixture into batter. Divide batter between the prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 2 1/2 hours.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

holiday gum drop cake

7/18/2014

Hi, I have been looking for the receipe for years. a lady from my church made it at holiday time. What do I do if I want to leave the raisins out? And also do I cut the gum drops in half or leave them round?
