A not too sweet cake packed with raisins. Perfect with coffee or tea and a wonderful departure from the typically sweet holiday goodies.

This cake often appeared on the Sunday dinner table during the depression and the war years. It's been in my family for three generations. During the "olden days," many families could not afford the luxury of the traditional fruitcakes, so this recipe became the popular Christmas fruitcake of the poor.

This recipe if from the l930's. My Grandmother gave it to my Mother and she gave it to me. Now I am a grandmother and passed it down to my kids. It's really good. You don't have to dirty your mixer for this one, just a big bowl.

This cake is for those of you who have allergies. When my kids were small they developed an allergy against all dairy products, and then gradually outgrew them.

This eggless loaf is very dense and moist. It originated during World War II, when eggs, milk and butter were in short supply.

In about 1968, we moved next door to a family with seven little boys. Their mother gave me this recipe. It is really delicious. You can frost it, or just eat it like it is.
