Old Fashioned Raisin Cake is wonderful for breakfast with coffee or for dessert with fruit on top. I love this raisin cake with butter spread on it hot out of the oven. If you like a combination of the spices below, you will love this raisin cake.
1/3 cup butter or 5 1/3 tablespoons
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, (optional)
Bring butter, sugar, raisins, spices, salt and water to a medium boil for 3 minutes on top of the stove. Remove from stove and let cool. Stir in vanilla extract. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl. Pour in cooled ingredients and mix until ingredients are all wet. Stir in eggs and fold in nuts. Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes until center tests done. Can add your favorite frosting or a glaze. I usually just sprinkle on some powdered sugar. Keeps well in an airtight container for several day. I don’t refrigerate. Can be reheated in oven or microwave. Makes 1 loaf. Enjoy!
