2 cups sugar, ½ cup butter, ¾ cup milk, 3 cups sifted fl our, 2 teaspoons baking
powder, 1 level tablespoon mace, I cup hickory nut or walnut meats (chopped) and
1 cup raisins.
Cream sugar and butter and add milk; then add dry ingredients. Fill the cake
pans with a layer of cake batter, a layer of raisins, then a layer of nuts until all
batter is used. Pans should be lined with buttered paper. Bake about 1 hour and 40
minutes at 300ºF. (This is very delicious and keeps well.)
