A torte is not the same thing as a torta

My birthday is in a few days, and this year I’m going to make my own cake. I have two cookbooks devoted entirely to cake recipes so this shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

Pork Cake

1 pound ground salt pork
1 pint water
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups flour
1 pound raisins
1 pound currants

Pour the water, boiling, over the ground salt pork. When cold, add sugar, soda, cinnamon and the other spices and ingredients in order. Blend thoroughly. Place in large pans and bake in slow oven for four hours.

Okay, this may be a little more difficult than I originally thought.
