Raisin Cake

3 cups self-rising flour
1 stick softened butter
2 large eggs
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup milk
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger or pumkin pie spice

In a large bowl, mix the eggs, the butter, the sugars, and the vanilla extract.  Beat mixture until fluffy.  Next, add the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice.  Keep stirring and add the flour and the milk. Finally add the raisins, making sure they have been drenched in flour.  This will keep the raisins from sinking. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until done.  Use a toothpick in the center to test if it is done.  If it does come out clean, then it is done.  Set cake aside in a cool place for at least 20 minutes.  Once cake has been cooled, serve.  Will serve at least 8 people.
