      We enjoyed this raisin cake, will definitely make it again! Next time I will add some rum to the raisin/nut mixture, I know it will be delicious! My cake was done in 40 minutes, this is a nice easy recipe.

      This cake is absolutely delicious! I added the beaten egg to step number 5. I added the flour, cream of tartar and baking soda together in a bowl (Step 6). I added the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture alternating with the milk (Step 6). The result is a fabulous coffee cake that is moist with a sweet and nutty filler. The center of the cake was not done after 40 minutes so I covered the edges with foil and baked for an additional 10 minutes. When I bake this again I will cover the cake at about 25 minutes with foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes - then for another 5 minutes or so without the foil. Thanks Mercy.
