The Scripture Cake is also called the Bible Cake or Old Testament Cake. Scripture Cakes were historically presented as a fun cake recipe or fun guessing game which tested the participants' knowledge of the Bible and their cooking abilities. The cake was meant as a way to teach baking and Bible verses; the original recipes didn’t include the ingredients. There are many versions, each made from a different recipe, yet they all share similarities. Recipes differ on amounts of ingredients and occasionally the Bible verses used to find them. However, most are enjoyable as well as entertaining.
