One-half teaspoon nutmeg
One-fourth teaspoon ground cloves
One and one-fourth cups sugar
Three-fourths cup butter or margarine
One-half cup water
One cup shredded carrots
One cup raisins
Melt semi-sweet chocolate morsels on top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Remove from heat. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; set aside. Combine sugar and butter; beat until well blended. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add melted chocolate. Gradually stir dry ingredients into chocolate mixture alternately with the water. Add carrots and raisins; mix well. Turn into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan and bake in a 350 degree oven 35 minutes. Cool. First [sic] with a chocolate frosting, if desired. Cut in two-inch squares.
Honestly? I can't get passed the chocolate/ raisin combo which I admit is silly because raisinets are yummy!
