Wow! I thought this cake looked nice when I took it out of the pan, but after tasting it I can tell you it's fabulous! I divided the recipe in half and used a 6-cup half-bundt pan. I did use butter instead of lard because I was out of lard. I rinsed the raisins in hot water and sprinkled just a little brandy on them. I decided that 1/2 of a dash of the three spices should be measured at 1/16 teaspoon. I think I got that right. It did take quite a while longer for the cake to rise. I waited until it had nearly doubled and then baked it. It is not at all heavy, and is moist and tender. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe.
