    I'm not a fan of raisins, but I always LOVED this wonderful cake... It goes great with Grammie Bea's Special Vanilla Frosting.

      I had company coming yesterday and wanted to have a special cake to share. I made this without mishap in the kitchen and it came out wonderfully. I have to tell you it makes one beautiful cake. Similar to a spice cake with raisins and it got rave reviews from everyone. I made it using Grammie Bea's Special Vanilla Frosting of course! No wonder you liked this cake even though you don't like raisins Linda, because I'm not crazy about them, but I had 2 pieces of this cake along with some vanilla ice cream! My sister and friend asked for the recipe, which I always take as a compliment. Five stars all the way with this one!

      I made this delicious cake and then frosted it with Angela's Pineapple Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting. The cake was moist and very tasty. Loved the texture of the cake! The cake was so delicious with this frosting. Thanks for posting! Alexa
