  4. Add sifted ingredients alternately with pea "soup" to egg mixture, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Dredge raisins and nuts in remaining 1/2 cup flour and stir into batter.
  5. Spread in a lightly sprayed 9 inch x 13 inch pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until evenly browned. Cut into 24 bars (4 x 6 rows).
