CIVIL WAR IDIOT'S DELIGHT 
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. raisins
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 c. water
7 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. white sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour

Boil together the first 5 ingredients. Make a batter of the second 5 ingredients. Drop the batter in a greased pan by spoonfuls. Pour first mixture over it and bake in a moderate oven until golden brown.

This recipe was given to my mother many years ago by an old lady who said her family used it during the hard times after the Civil War. It was popular because it used only a few, inexpensive, easy to obtain ingredients and is fool-proof. Even an idiot can make it. My kind of cookin'.
