    redplaid huf's Note:

    I love recipes that allow me to bake out of the cupboard at those times when the fridge is empty. This is a dense, moist cake that came out of the war years because it is eggless, milkless and could be butterless. It is great topped with Poor Man's Cooked Frosting. I have used other dried fruits to replace part of the raisins. Two years in a row I have brought this cake to a scrapbooking retreat and both times received requests for the recipe so I am posting it here. Prep time does not include cooling time.

    1. 1
      Mix sugar, butter, water, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes and then cool.
    2. 2
      Mix flour and baking soda and add to cool raisin mixture.
    3. 3
      Spread into greased and floured 9" square. Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes. The top of the cake will bounce back when lightly tapped. Be careful, over cooking will dry it out.
    4. 4
      Dust with icing sugar or frost with "Poor Man's Frosting" or forget it. It is great just on it's own.
