OLD FASHION BLACKBERRY CAKE

This is an old newspaper clipping from my mother-in-law's old recipe files.

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups lard or shortening
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
2 cups blackberries, crushed
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Combine the eggs, sugar, shortening, cinnamon and cloves in a large mixing bowl. Beat mixture until well blended. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda along with the blackberries. Mix well. Pour the batter into a greased square pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
