Aunt Rosie's Eggless Raisin Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Taylor in Belgium

This was a recipe from Hilma Murphy, my best friend's mother. She passed away when I was 12. She always made this cake for us, and after her death, we looked through her recipes and I copied this one down. Easy to make, definitely a comfort cake that is wonderful when still warm!

Very very nice. My mom was asking for a cake with raisins and nuts, and so I made this one. Very easy to make and very nice. Thank you for posting. I made a couple of changes, I used butter instead of margarine, used 3/4 cup sugar, and omitted the nutmeg as I did not have any. I also added some almonds to the batter. Most good especially when warm.
