Nut and Raisin Cake

Nut and Raisin Cake

Cake:
1 full cup of raisins
1 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cube margarine (I will attempt to use butter and see what happens)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 cup nuts

Frosting:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 TB water
1/4 cup margarine or butter
Powdered sugar, enough to make a soft spread

For the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 (?) pan.  Grind the raisins in a food chopper.  Add boiling water to the raisins and let stand.  Cream the margarine and sugar.  Add the egg and mix.  Add the soda to the raisin mixture and then mix into the margarine/sugar/egg.  Add the flour, salt, vanilla and nuts. Mix until blended.  Bake for 35 minutes in 9x13 pan (?).  This can be made in 2 8" layer pans, but the time will need to be adjusted for smaller pans.

For the frosting: Bring the brown sugar and water to a boil.  Add the margarine or butter and enough powdered sugar to make a soft spread.  It sets up good and quick.  Spread on a cooled (?) cake.
