1/2 teaspoon mace

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup seeded raisins

2 tablespoons shortening

1 cup sugar

1 egg, well beaten

1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup

Cream cheese icing (see step 2)

1. To make the cake: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour, spices, baking soda and baking powder. Wash and cut raisins; roll in 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture. Cream shortening and add sugar gradually; add egg, mixing thoroughly. Then add flour mixture alternately with the soup. Stir until smooth. Fold in the raisins. Pour into a greased 8 1/2-inch square baking pan and bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until done.

2. To make cream cheese icing: Cream 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese until soft, then add 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir until smooth and then spread on cool cake.
