    breezermom's Note:

    This cake is equally as good for desert and breakfast.....I love it as a coffee cake! It is a bit sweet, but only live once, right!? Start the frosting just before the cake comes out of the oven, because it has to cool before adding the sugar.

      Oh, so good! I didn't use the raisins or pecans as I am having trouble with a tooth, but can't wait to make again with them when I get it fixed. My only changes would be to use 1/2 tsp. clove instead of 1 tsp. and the bake time. Mine was done after 60 mn. A moist delicious cake and the caramel frosting enhances it well. Thanks for posting!
