This is a nice, flavorful quick bread/cake that goes perfectly with a cup of tea on a brisk day! Even though I used the full amount of sugar, it was not too sweet. One thing I was disappointed in was that all the raisins sunk to the bottom during baking, and I'm not sure why. The batter is rather a thin one, which might be the reason. Anyway, I enjoyed this just the same. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game.
