Christmas, for the Shakers, was a day of forgiveness and of giving. Music became part of the festivities, with songs being written for the holiday and caroling taking place on Christmas morning. Among the traditions of the North Union Shaker Village in Ohio, a special Christmas cake was served. While I can't confirm the Christmas Cake recipe found in "The Best of Shaker Cooking," is the exact recipe, I can say, after making it, that it would be quite the Christmas Day treat.
