Cowboy Fruit Cake Recipe + Anesthesia


As the holiday season begins and many prepare for the upcoming hustle and bustle and stress that is coming up, I wanted to share a ‘recipe’ for a “Cowboy Fruit Cake” that I ran across one day.   Along with the recipe is a quote addressing a well known ‘anesthesia’ that a few resort to during the holiday to cope with the stress. 

Please keep in mind that this post is done is jest.  I wanted to give you some humor as we get ready to begin the new week.    Enjoy!         ~  GM Universe



“You’ll need the following: a cup of water, a cup of sugar, four large brown eggs, two cups of dried fruit, a teaspoon of salt, a cup of brown sugar, lemon juice, nuts, and a bottle of whiskey.

Sample the whiskey to check for quality.   Take a large bowl.   Check the whiskey again.   To be sure it’s the highest quality, pour one level cup, and drink.   Repeat.   Turn on the electric mixer, beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.   Add one teaspoon of sugar and beat again.

Make sure the whiskey is still okay.   Cry another tup.   Trun off the mixter.   Beat two leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Mix on the tuner.   If the fired druit gets stuck in the beaterers, pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the whiskey to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt.   Or something.   Who cares?   Check the whiskey.   Now sift the lemon juice and strain the nuts.   Add one table. Spoon.   Of sugar or something.   Whatever you can find.

Grease the oven.   Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees.   Don’t forget to beat off the turner.  Throw the bowl out of the window.   Check the whiskey again and go to bed.
