This was one of the first cakes I learned to bake. It came out of a very old cook book. It was a “one bowl cake”. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

1/3 cup walnuts
2 cups sifted plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup milk

    Grind together pulp and rind of orange (reserve juice for topping), raisins, and walnuts, using food chopper.
     Sift together flour, soda, salt and sugar. Add shortening and 3/4 cup milk.
Blend at low speed, then beat at medium speed for 1/&1/2 min.
      Add eggs and 1/4 cup milk. Beat for 1&1/2 min.
Fold orange-raisin mixture into batter.
