This cake has the moistness and spice of a fruitcake, but you won't have to wait a month to eat it. from New Recipes from Moosewood Restaur

Oh, how yummy! I made this in a star-shaped muffin pan and halfed the recipe which gave me 8 stars. They were moist, spicy and oh so tasty! Even though I kinda messed it up by forgetting to put in the oil, the recipe still turned out great! I used maple syrup as a sweetener and only used half as much as indicated. With the sweetness of the raisins this was perfect. I will definitely make this again! Thank you so much for sharing, jimstoic!
