"Gollie's" Wash Day Cake

Author/Submitted by: Carol D. Westover <>
Servings: 12
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

2  cups  flour
2  teaspoons  baking soda
1  cup  sugar
1/2  teaspoon  salt
2  tablespoons  cinnamon
1  cup  raisins, plumped, see note
1 1/2  cups  nuts
2    eggs
1  stick  margarine, softened
2  tablespoons  vanilla
1  can  pie filling, apple, cherry, peach, blueberry, etc.

1. Into a large bowl, sift together: flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.

2. Add: plumped raisins, nuts, eggs, softened margarine, vanilla, pie filling. DO NOT USE MIXER OR PROCESSOR! Mix all at once (by hand -- it's easy), until you see no flour.

3. Put into greased 9x13" pan or make cupcakes. Mix cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle generously on top of dough. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes. When you use apricot, peach or blueberry pie filling, add 1/2 tsp almond extract plus the vanilla.

To plump raisins, pour boiling water over raisins, let sit for 5 minutes, and then drain. This freezes nicely or it will keep well for one week when kept covered.
