Remember all this started with a simple remark that a book had been written.
350 degree oven
1/2 cup shortening - (note: you may use part bacon fat**)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon other spices (cloves, mace, ginger..)
1 cup chopped raisins or other dried fruit (prunes, figs, etc.)
1 cup sugar, white or brown
1 cup water (note: you can substitute coffee for part of the water)
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
When the raisin mixture has cooled, add sifted dry ingredients, mixing well.
Turn into a loaf pan and bake 45 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cool 15 - 20 minutes then turn out from pan, if desire.

** I adore bacon, yet have found that personally, I do not care for the taste of the bacon fat in baked goods.
