Excellent. . .the only changes I made were to add a teaspoon of vanilla (I put vanilla in almost anything baked) and left out the nuts (because I didn't have any). The only reason I can't evaluate it for breakfast is that it didn't last that long!

I made this for my family and they all loved it. The only thing I left out of the cake were the raisins (I don't like them). I iced it with a cream cheese frosting and it was great.
