Grandma's notes.
"Or cook 1 cup raisins having enough water after cooking to nmeasure 1 cup. Mix like recipe leaving out coffee and using raisin water for liquid. Mix little of water at the last with soda. Bake as directed. This is the orginal recipe but my family did not care for raisins. I lost the recipe so I'm not sure about soda."
