DIRECTIONS

  • In a large covered cooking pot, combine raisins, sugar, water, molasses, shortening, cinnamon, cloves, salt, nutmeg, and rum. Bring to a boil and boil gently for 10 minutes, stirring often. Let cool to room temperature, preferably overnight.
  • Combine flour and baking soda and stir into the cooled mixture. Stir by hand and only enough to thoroughly mix in the flour.
  • Grease 2 bread pans and line bottom with waxed paper. Pour mixture into pans and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Check to see if a toothpick comes out clean, and if not, bake up to 10 minutes more. Do not overbake.
  • Cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then run a knife around sides and remove cakes from pans. Cool completely and wrap in aluminum foil.
