I don't know about the prep time. I'm pretty good in the kitchen, but chopping and grating everything was the most time consuming. I didn't use the raisins, but otherwise this was SUPER! It is pretty time consuming even without the cooking, so its more of a weekend treat here. Thank you so much for sharing this Izzy :)
