Mom’s Picnic Graham Cake

This is a favorite from my childhood and teenage years. 

1 package (13 ¾ oz) graham cracker crumbs
 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
1 c. seedless raisins (optional)
2/3 cup shortening
2 c. sugar
6 eggs
2/3 cup milk

Combine graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, walnuts and raisins in a bowl.  Add shortening and sugar to a mixer bowl and mix until creamy.  Add eggs one at a time and mix.  Add milk and mix.  Add bowl of dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

Pour cake batter to a buttered 13″ x 9″ baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes until just done.
