Recipe: Rasin Puff

Raisins always increase the food value of a meal, and they are especially good when combined with the ingredients required for the dessert known as raisin puff. This steamed PUDDING is rather rich and should not, of course, be served with a meal in which the other foods are rich.

(Sufficient to Serve Eight)

  •  1/2 c. shortening
  •  1/2 c. sugar
  •  1 egg
  •  2-1/4 c. flour
  •  4 tsp. baking powder
  •  1 tsp. cinnamon
  •  1/4 tsp. salt
  •  1 c. milk
  •  1 c. raisins

CREAM the shortening and add the sugar gradually and the beaten egg. Sift the dry ingredients with the flour and add alternately with the milk. Chop the raisins and fold them into the mixture. Turn into a buttered mold, cover, and steam for 1-1/2 or 2 hours. Remove from the mold and serve hot with whipped CREAM or any desired Sauce.
