may be substituted for brandy. Cream shortening and orange rind together.
Add brown sugar gradually and cream thoroughly. Blend in well beaten eggs.
Beat hard for 1-2 minutes to make a smooth batter. Sift flour, soda, salt
and spices together and add to creamed mixture alternately with the
molasses and mix of orange juice/brandy. Add raisins. Pour in well greased
and floured 8" X 12" X 2-1/2" pan. bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
