Poor Man's Raisin Cake

1 cup raisins               
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
2 cups flour
1 tsp soda,
1 tsp baking powder
2 rounded Tablespoons Shortening
Add the following as you like, salt, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger

Cook raisins and water down to one cup juice.  Add soda and shortening to the liquid while warm. You have already mixed dry ingredients of sugar and flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.  Add this to the warm liquid which you have added the soda and shortening. You want a light batter, not stiff. Mix well and bake at 350 degrees until done, approximately 35 minutes
