This is a favourite cake at the holiday season. It is pretty to
serve, and it doesn't need to be ripened. You can serve it the
3 cups Australian Sultana raisins (approximately).
Water to cover.
1 cup butter or margarine
11/2 cups white sugar
3 cups white flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Bring raisins in water to a boil. Cook 15 to 20 minutes. Drain
well and cool.
Lightly flour cherries using 1 Tbsp. flour. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Beat well. Add cherries and raisins. Stir to mix.
