Preparation

* The original recipe calls for Lard. I dont 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. From "Trail Bosss Cowboy Cookbook" by Society of Range Management. File ftp://ftp.idiscover.co.uk/pub/food/mealmaster/recipes/west.zip
