Ingredients:

  • 1 large orange, juice and rind

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sour milk or buttermilk

Squeeze juice from orange, mix with 3/4 cup of the sugar, and set aside. Put raisins and orange rind through meat grinder; set aside. Cream butter with remaining 1 cup sugar, then beat in everything else, adding ground mixture last.
