1 egg
1 cup sour milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cloves
1 cup raisins
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup walnut meats, chopped

Blend shortening, sugar and egg. Add sour milk. Sift and stir in dry ingredients, then add raisins and nuts. Pour into muffin tins or paper baking cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until done. Ice at the time of baking, or later with the following caramel icing. Makes about 18 cupcakes

Caramel Icing
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water
2 egg whites

Boil brown sugar, salt and water until it spins a thread (232 degrees). Pour 1/3 of this syrup over stiffly beaten egg whites, beating while pouring. Put the remainder of the syrup back on the fire and cook until it forms a soft ball in cold water (238 degrees). Add this syrup to the original mixture and beat until it is the consistency to spread.
