Grandma's Great Depression Cake

A delicious spiced cake recipe that is made with cinnamon, ground cloves and nutmeg, Grandma's Great Depression Cake is easy to make and easy on the budget. Old fashioned cake recipes like this will forever be remembered as some of the best desserts out there. Baked until it is a golden brown, each slice has a bold flavor that is perfect for the colder months of the year. Serve it when it is still warm and you won't be able to stop at just one slice.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
     
  2. Combine sugar, water, vegetable oil, raisins, and spices in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Take pan off heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
     
  3. Dissolve baking soda and salt in 2 teaspoons of water and add to raisin mixture (it will foam).
     
  4. Blend in the flour and baking powder. Mix well.
     
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 9 inch square pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick unserted in the center comes out clean.
