1 package of raisins
2 cups of water
1 cup cold water
1 cup salad oil
2 cups sugar
4 cups flour - into which you sift 2 tablespoons Bakers cocoa (other brands have proved to
be undesirable) NOTE: if you would like the cake darker, you may add a bit more cocoa.
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice.
1 cup chopped nuts

To 1 package of raisins add 2 cups of water and simmer slowly until the raisins puff up.

(Cook in a pan that can be used as a mixing bowl.) Cool, then remaining ingredients.

Bake 1 hour at 350º F. (if too moist it may require an extra 10 minutes) Testing cake near

the center will cause it to sag. Do all testing close to the side.
