Generations – My Family Cookbook
1 box Raisins
1 Tbsp. Butter
2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 C. Boiling Water
Boil water, and add the above ingredients. Let sit overnight. This makes the raisins plump up. And then add the following to the raisin mixture. (This batter will be very thick.)
4 C. Flour
2 C. Sugar
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 C. chopped Pecans
2 Eggs, Beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla

Mix well and put into tin cans that have been greased with shortening. (Campbell’s large chunky soup size.) This might be a #303, but I am not sure. Fill 3/4 full. This should yield about 6 cans. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes, or until done. Remove from oven and let cool for a while before taking the cakes out of the can.
