  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening, plus extra for loaf pans
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


Heat oven to 350°.
Cream shortening and add sugar. Mix soup, water, and baking soda; add to shortening/sugar mixture.
Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and spices; add to mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts.
Pour into two prepared loaf pans. Bake about 40 minutes, until toothpicks inserted into the cakes come out clean.
