    recipe title: Poor Man's Cake
    category: Desserts
    keywords: cake
    servings: 4
          1 c  Sugar
          1 c  Lard *
        1/4 ts Cloves
          1 ts Cinnamon (Or To Taste)
          2 c  Raisins
        1/4 ts Allspice
          1 x  Pinch Of Salt
    * 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 lightly (about 1 hour at 350 degrees F). Serve warm or cold with cream, custard sauce or powdered sugar frosting. Walnuts may be added to batter just before baking.
