Poor Manís Fruitcake
This was popular during World War II. Butter was rationed, and we could get lard with fewer ration coupons. Notice the absence of eggs.

1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup lard
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350 F

Grease and flour one 8 1/2x4 1/2 x 2 inch loaf pan.

Heat raisins, sugar, lard, and water till sugar dissolves, and lard melts. Cool

Whisk together, or sift the dry ingredients. Add dry to wet, stir well.

Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Wrap and store for several days before cutting.
