    Grandma Lobdell's Rasin Molassas Cake




    GRANDMA LOBDELL’S RAISIN MOLASSES CAKE

    you'll need :

    1 16 oz. box raisins
    1 1/2 cup water
    bring that to a boil (3 minutes) remove from heat and set aside

    in a bowl :
    1 cup flower
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup molasses - doesn't matter what kind ...but the better quality the better it taste in the end
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. all spice
    1/2 tsp. clove
    1/2 tsp. ginger
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    water from boiled raisins
    MIX WELL ... then
    add 8 tbsp. melted shorting/crisco (I use Butter, but Grandma didn’t) (not to hot or it will cook the eggs)
    MIX WELL ... then
    then alternately add the cooked raisins with and additional cup of flour
    (like a 1/4 cup of each at a time) till all is mixed well

    {{{{When Aunt Ethel passed this recipe on she stressed IT IS IMPORTANT TO ADD THESE INGREDIENTS SLOWLY/ALTERNATING 1/4 cup ... 1/4 cup.... 1/4 cup ....1/4 cup ... so on }}}}


    BATTER IS A LITTLE RUNNY LOOKING and LUMPY FROM THE RAISINS

    Bake in a well greased/floured glass pan at 350* for 40-60 minutes until tooth pick comes out clean.

    This is the one cake I ALWAYS knew was waiting for us when we went to visit Grandma. It’s a very dense moist cake. No frosting needed. Very sweet of course. Hearty and comforting.
