Raisin Loaf Cake

3/4 c. shortening (like Crisco) 1 1/2 c. brown sugar 2 eggs 3 1/2 c. cake flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. baking soda 3 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1/2 tsp. ginger 1 c. buttermilk 1 1/2 c. raisins
A rich, crumbly Pennsylvania Dutch tea bread. The brown sugar gives this bread a molasses note. A thick slice, toasted with a little butter is nice at breakfast time. Note: To substitute all purpose flour for cake flour, measure out the flour and subtract 2 Tbsp. of all purpose flour for each cup. To substitute sweet milk for buttermilk, add 2 Tbsp. of white vinegar to the bottom of a measuring cup, then fill up the rest of the cup with milk (the kind you'd use on your cereal). Let it stand 2-3 min. Preheat oven to 325F. Cream shortening and add sugar gradually. Add eggs and beat until well blended. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and ginger. Add raisins to flour and stir to coat raisins. Add sifted flour-raisin mixture to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk. Blend well. Prepare 2 loaf pans by spraying them with nonstick spray. Divide batter between the two pans. Bake at 325F for 1 hour. Turn out from pans and cool completely on racks.
