Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour one 18cm square baking tin.
Boil sugar, raisins, butter and the water until the raisins absorb most of the water and are quite soggy and mushy. Set aside and let cool completely.
Sift the flour, cinnamon and the baking powder together. Stir the flour mixture into the raisin mixture and mix until just combined. Spread the cake mixture into the prepared tin.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake springs back when touched. Immediately put on a wire rack to cool. This is a very soft cake, liable to break easily. Take care when you cut the cake.
