Pecan cake

Cream sugar and butter, add eggs, stirring well. Sift flour with dry ingredients. Add flour a little at a time to the egg mixture, stirring in each addition thoroughly. Add brandy. Flour the raisins and stir in with pecans. Bake in a well greased 9 inch tube pan in a moderate oven (350º F) about 1 hour and 10 minutes. This cake will keep many weeks in a tight-lidded tin, and moist if brandy is poured over from time to time.
