1 ts Cinnamon (Or To Taste)

* The original recipe calls for Lard. I don’t know if shortening will
work or not. Boil together all ingredients. Add water just enough water
to cover raisins. Boil until raisins are tender. Cool. Add 1 t baking soda
and enough Unbleached flour to make a stiff batter. Pour batter into 9-inch
round cake pan. Bake in moderate oven until cake springs back when touched

custard sauce or powdered sugar frosting. Walnuts may be added to batter
just before baking.
