Definately 5 stars for this!A great tasting,easy cake to make.I toasted the pecans before I chopped them for extra flavour.I think next time I would omit the raisins though,or just have them in the middle layer.I found the ones on top got too dry and chewy.I used margarine instead of shortening also.Thanks for the great recipe!

wow! i have this cake on a recipe card from My Recipes(tm). i've been making your same cake since 1990. it's my absolute favorite! try changing up the fruits and nuts. i like dried cherries, pineapple, pecans, with or without the chocolate. the only thing missing is the use of waxed paper for the lining.
