Amazin' Raisin Cake

Taking liberties to change the name of a recipe from Just Plain Cooking is not what I am inclined to do. But today's cake title just needed a little tweaking. I am sure it is obvious what I did to the name. Bake and enjoy, whatever you call it.

Amazin' Raisin Cake (Memaw's)

3 cups unsifted flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cloves
3 cups chopped apples
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Grease and flour 2 (9 inch) round baking pans.
In large bowl with mixer at low speed, beat first 10 ingredients for 2 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. (Or beat vigorously 300 strokes by hand.)
Batter will be thick. Stir in with spoon the apples, raisins, and nuts.
Spoon batter into pans.
Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 45 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove and cool.
Fill and frost with 2 cups of whipped cream.
