Eggless Jamaican Fruitcake

Once I had to make a fruit cake for someone who is vegetarian.This recipe has no eggs. I miss the butter but you can use butter flavoring if you like.

 2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp mixed peel
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup currants
1 cup milk or wine
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp vinegar
Sift the flour, salt, and spices together. Rub in the shortening and add sugar. Mix in raisin, currants and peel. Add the milk with soda dissolved in it. Add vinegar last. Pour into greased and lined baking tin. Bake at 350F for about 1 hour.
