In a large saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil the sugar, water, butter, spices, and raisins. Boil for five minutes, then remove from heat, and let cool till lukewarm.

Step 3

Stir into this mixture the lightly beaten eggs, flour, baking soda, vanilla extract and candied fruit.

Step 4

Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 50 - 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 5

Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Cover and store, if possible, for a few days before serving.
