Cake with a difference. You do not have to cream butter and sugar or beat the eggs. This involves boiling raisins, margarine and sugar together and adding flour to it. Simple and tasty. Just the way I love it.
Boiled Raisin Cake II
1 cup turbinado sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 7×7 inch square baking pan.
2 Boil sugar, raisins, butter or margarine, and the water until the raisins absorb most of the water and are quite soggy and mushy. Set aside and let cool completely.
3 Sift the flour and the baking powder together. Stir the flour mixture into the raisin mixture and mix until just combined. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake springs back upon the touch. Immediately put on a wire rack to cool. This is a very soft cake, liable to break easily. Take care when you cut the cake.
