Yummy-licious! Quick and easy and bursting with vibrant flavors. I made it on the spur of the moment and didn't have enough raisins so I added enough dried cranberries to make 1 cup. It was delicious. I think any dried fruit or combination of dried fruits would work: apricots, cranberries, dates, cherries, papaya, etc. Next time I'll add nuts too. My mouth waters just thinking about it.
Very good, rich cake! I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins but otherwise followed the recipe. The cake doesn't rise up very high - about 3/4 of the way up the sides of the pan - so the slices are short ones. I used freshly squeezed Clementine juice in the drizzle that I heated before adding the sugar; topped the hot cake with 1/2 of it and the rest just before serving. I took it to a potluck dinner and my friends all loved it -not a crumb was left.
This is amazing and so easy! I used about only half the topping and then when it cooled dusted with confectioner's sugar. I plan to try this with dates & walnuts sometime.
