 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Butter
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 ts Lemon peel; grated
  • 1 tb Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c Golden raisins
  • 4 c Pecans; chopped
  • 3 c Flour
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Baking powder


Cream butter & sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add lemon
juice, peel & vanilla. Mix raisins, nuts & 1/4 cup flour. Sift remaining
dry ingredients. Alternately fold nuts & raisins and dry ingredients into
creamed mixture. Spoon into a greased, paper- linde 10-inch tube pan. Bake
in slow oven (at 300) about 1 hour and 50 minutes. Cool. Remove from pan.
(I use small loaf pans.) VARIATION: For a sweeter, more moist cake, pour a
syrup made from 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup lemon juice & 1/4 cup sugar
over cake while it is still hot.
