Grandma's Spice Cake
Bake this cake and the spice-filled scent will permeate your house. Family members will wander in, curious as to what's cooking. They'll stick around to see if it's as good as it smells. (It is.)
- Cream together the butter, brown sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Stir in the raisins, salt and spices. Mix well. Add half the flour. Blend in the baking soda and milk. Stir in the remaining flour and baking powder.
- For layer cake: Pour batter into two greased and floured 8-inch cake pans. Bake in 375°F preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until top springs back when touched, or test with cake tester. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto wire racks to finish cooling before frosting.
- For Sheath Cake: Pour into greased and floured 9x13-inch pan. Bake in 350°F preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until top springs back when touched, or test with cake tester. Allow to cool, then frost in pan.
Note: Our Cream Cheese Frosting is especially good with this cake.
