  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 inch pans. In a saucepan, simmer the raisins in the water on medium low heat.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Blend these dry ingredients into the sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Strain the raisins. Discard the raisin pulp. Add water to the raisin juice to make 3/4 cup liquid, and add to the batter. Add the chopped nuts. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool the cake on a wire rack, and frost.

Recipe was good although made a few changes. I added a half of teaspoon of baking powder, two tablespoons of molasses, and instead of one egg, I used two.... It came out really delicious!!!!

Exactly what I was looking for. As a kid we used a box mix and now that I make the effort to scratch bake I did not think I could replicate the past. We omitted nuts and raisins. Used apple jui...

The cake was dry and very flat. The flavor was good but wouldn't recommend or make again.

Just used this recipe as a tier for my sister's wedding. It was such a big hit that some people didn't get to try so I have to make another one!
