Quick Cake

Raised bread-dough, 1½ lbs.;

Butter, ½ lb.;

Sugar, ¾ lb.;

Eggs, 4;

Cinnamon, 1 teaspoonful;

Nutmeg, 1;

Milk, 1 teaspoonful;

Baking soda, ½ teaspoonful;

Melt half a pound of butter, and when cool, work it into a pound and a half of raised bread-dough. Beat four eggs and three quarters of a pound of rolled sugar together, and mix with the dough; add a teaspoonful of cinnamon, and a grated nutmeg. Dissolve half a teaspoonful of soda in a teaspoonful of milk, strain it over the dough, and work the whole with the hands for a quarter of an hour; then add a pound of seeded raisins, and put it into cake pans. Let it stand in them until light before putting it into the oven.
