"This is fun to make and everyone who came to my house had a second serving
and might have had more but unfortunately by that time it was all gone.
This recipe came from a cookbook published in 1917 during World War 1 when
cooks had to skimp." Anne's note: this is also called "War Cake" or
"Victory Cake" in some cookbooks. It might be suitable for vegans (is
shortening derived from animals?)

Into a saucepan, measure sugar, water, shortening and raisins. Boil for 4
minutes. Cool. Sift together and add remaining ingredeints. Bake at 350F
for 40 minutes.
