Boiled Raisin Cake........

Sometimes when you are looking through your old recipes, you come across an "oldie but goodie" You know what I mean. You've had the recipe for years and yet for whatever reason, it got pushed to the back of the recipe box. This is so good. It is moist, spicy and freezes very well. So you can make it ahead and then freeze it later to have with card club, etc.

Boiled Raisin Cake
1 lb box of brown raisins & 2 cups water
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Boil in uncovered pan for 15 minutes:
Then add:
1 cup cold water & 2 teaspoons soda
1 egg
1/2 cup Crisco
2 cups sugar
Mix well.
Then add 3 cups flour. Mix well. Bake in 9x13 pan in 350° degree oven till done. Serve with cool whip or plain. It needs no icing and it’s great for brown bag lunches. This is so worth making! 
Till next time......
