100 Year Old Pork Cake

This is a sweet meat cake from Gramma Stevens' ziplock recipe bag. It's so unique, it makes you wonder what people were thinking 150 years ago. And... could it possibly contain raisins? Why, yes it does. As with all gramma's recipes, I keep them original and the directions are as is.

Good Luck and Enjoy ~
