Aunties Gumdrop Cake

Gum Drop Cake, from the Kitchen of my Auntie Gladys (Masterson) Eby

1 CUP BUTTER 
1 LB. LIGHT RAISINS (SIMMER IN WATER COOL AND DRAIN)
1 CUP WHITE SUGAR
2 EGGS 
1 LB. GUMDROPS
2 CUPS FLOUR

1 tsp. SALT
1 tsp. BAKING SODA

DREDGE GUMDROPS, RAISINS IN 1 CUP OF THE FLOUR. COMBINE INGREDIENTS IN ORDER GIVEN. ADD FLOURED RAISINS AND GUMDROPS AND (FOLD) IN. LINE LOAF PAN WITH PARCHMENT PAPER. BAKE 2 HRS. IN SLOW OVEN 300 DEGREES.
