Fold raisins and pecans. Pour the mixture in a greased and floured 10inch tube cake pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour or until done (check cake with a knife).
Make the Rum sauce by heating orange juice, remove from stove and add the rum. Pour over hot cake. Wait until cake is cool and turn it into a serving plate.
