This is a very dense and moist raisin cake. It originated during World War II, when eggs, milk and butter were in short supply.

Five stars for vegans and those who don't have the standard eggs, milk or butter on hand, three or four stars for everyone else. I enjoyed it and it had a unique, spicy taste, but it's not the best cake I've ever made. - 16 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Love this cake! I started making it for my two vegan sons but it's a favorite around our house, too. I've tried two different versions but this version (boiling the spices) gives better flavor and nice color, too. - 25 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
