When I returned to work this November, I found myself in an old yet distinguished building, built in 1863. It has been remodeled and updated per need and change of law, as years turned to decades and decades turned to centuries. This is home to many people. Each of them with a past, personal history and stories to tell. These lives, also having been updated as life changed and personal decisions made, took effect. It is rare to find an unchanged person, for change is the only constant in this journey.
Remember all this started with a simple remark that a book had been written.
1/2 cup shortening - (note: you may use part bacon fat**)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon other spices (cloves, mace, ginger..)
1 cup chopped raisins or other dried fruit (prunes, figs, etc.)
1 cup sugar, white or brown
1 cup water (note: you can substitute coffee for part of the water)
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
When the raisin mixture has cooled, add sifted dry ingredients, mixing well.
Turn into a loaf pan and bake 45 minutes or until done in your oven.
Let cool 15 - 20 minutes then turn out from pan, if desired.

** I adore bacon, yet have found that personally, I do not care for the taste of the bacon fat in baked goods.
