BOILED SPICE CAKE

This is an old Iowa "church" recipe.

2 cups water
3/4 cup cooking oil
2 cups raisins
2 cups sugar
2 tsps cinnamon
2 tsps nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a 2-qt saucepan, bring the water, cooking oil, raisins, sugar, cimmamon, nutmeg, and cloves to a boil. Boil mixture for 10 minutes then allow to cool. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, eggs, and salt. Mix the batter well and pour into a well greased and floured 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 40 minutes until the cake tests done.
