Excellent cake and frosting! My mom always made boiled raisin cake for my dad's birthday, but we lost her this past year and the task has fallen to me. I didn't have her recipe so I chose this one, and I'm glad I did. I added a dash of ginger to the cake batter and used 1/2 cup of the water. Thanks for a great recipe!
