From Doll McInteer. Serves: lots.
From the box of L.S. from Joplin, Missouri.
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. [each] cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg
3/4 cup of shortening (12 Tbsp.)
Mix all together until fine. Take out 1/2 cup and save for top. To the balance of above mixture add 2 cups of buttermilk with 2 tsp. of soda added. Add 1 cup of raisins, nuts to suit.
Have your large pan grease and floured and after pouring mixture in add your half cup you took out. Bake in pre-heated 350 oven about 1 hour.
I test to be sure.
Good luck and I am sure you will have it.
