  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  4. Alternately add the flour mixture and the milk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Stir in the vanilla.
  5. Fold in the walnuts and raisins.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream, if desired.


  • You can substitute the raisins for dried cranberries, dried cherries, or dried currants.
  • For an extra festive touch, top the cake with a sprinkle of colored sugar crystals.
  • For a delicious variation, try adding 1/2 cup of orange or lemon zest to the batter.


The cake can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. For longer storage, wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
