1 large orange, juice and rind
1 3/4 c. sugar
1/2 to 1 c. raisins
1/2 c. butter
2 eggs
2/3 c. sour milk or buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. flour


Squeeze juice from orange, mix with 3/4 c. of the sugar and set aside. Put raisins and orange rind through food grinder; set aside.

Cream butter with remaining 1 c. sugar, then beat in everything else, adding ground mixture last. Turn batter into a greased and floured tube pan, and bake at 375 F until a toothpick comes out clean, about 40 to 50 minutes.

Remove from pan and put on cooling rack suspended over a plate. Pour orange-juice mixture over hot cake; cool before serving.
