Sins of the South Cake

1 pound golden raisins
1 cup Southern Comfort
1 pound pecans -- 1 quart
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
6 large eggs
3 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Soak raisins in bourbon overnight.

Preheat oven to 325-degrees. Grease and line bottom of 10-inch tube pan (or 2 small tube pans, or one small and one mini pan).

Cream butter and sugar. Gradually add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour sifted with baking powder and salt. Add raisins and pecans, mixing well. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake at 325 for 1 1/2 hours for tube pan, less time for smaller pans. Cool

After cooling, wrap cake in cheesecloth soaked in Southern Comfort and place in airtight container. Will keep for several weeks.
