The Police Were NOT Called

The Campfire Girls met here yesteday and the police were not called.
Sharon came down the road to see what we do. She brought a pitcher of iced Winter Spice Tea. Delicious.
I made the Spice Cake from Yankee Magazine, May 1979.
June picked through a scrap bag for floral pieces for some pincushions she is making.
We expect a show and tell when she comes back from Tennessee in a month or so.
Here's the cake recipe.
Spice Cake
Mix in 4 quart saucepan:
2 cups sugar
2 teasp. cinnamon
2 teasp. nutmeg
2 teasp. ground cloves
2 teasp. baking soda
1 teasp. salt
Add: 2 cups raisins
2 cups cold water
2 sticks butter or margarine
Cook and stir until bubbles appear on top. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Add all at once:
4 cups flour.
1 cup nut meats.
Mix and pour into 13" by 9" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
I like to use cream cheese frosting on this cake after it has cooled. I don't think I've ever used nuts in it.
This is a dense cake. The amount of spices may seem like a lot but it is not overpowering. Your house will smell delicious when it is cooking and baking.
