Ingredients
  Salad oil/Oleo or shortening 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  Flour 5 Cup (80 tbs)
  Baking powder 4 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Raisins 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Directions

Cook raisins in the water for about 10 minutes.
Cool and set aside.
Blend well the shortening {any one of the above three) with the eggs and sugar.
Sift in the 5 cups of flour with the baking powder and salt, alternately with the water from the raisins.
This makes a very hard, stiff mixture.
Pour all of the cooked raisins into the mixture and then mix with hands.
Put mixture in muffin tins and bake at 375 degrees for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Very heavy.
Suggest that you use small muffin tins if possible.
Delicious with coffee and tea.
