POOR MAN'S PUDDING

This is another very old recipe from my Southern Indiana hometown.

1 egg
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups flour
pinch salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons melted shortening

Beat egg and add sugar and molasses.  Add flour, salt, and cinnamon that have been sifted together.  Add the soda, dissolved in the hot water, and beat thoroughly.  Add shortening and then the raisins that have been lightly floured.  Fill greased pudding mold 3/4 full, cover it tight and steam 1 1/4 hours.  Serve hot with your favorite sauce.
