In a mixing bowl, cream together with electric mixer 1/4 C shortening and 1/2 C sugar until light and fluffy. Add 1 well beaten large egg, 1/2 C molasses, and 1 t. Pure Vanilla Extract. Beat all together thoroughly.
In a small bowl, Dredge and coat 1/2 C chopped walnuts and 1/2 C seedless raisins in 1/4 C flour. (This helps them “float” better in the batter instead of sinking to the bottom.)
In another bowl, combine with whisk, 2 C. flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1 1/2 t. baking powder, and 1/4 t. baking soda.
Add the dry ingredients alternately with 1/2 C. Milk. Beat with wooden spoon only until smooth. Fold in the raisin/nut mixture.
Pour batter into a square shallow pan that has been greased and floured. Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.
