Just bought this lovely new bundt pan and this recipe was on the box. I searche on here for others and there are a couple but differant than this one - for one thing it only takes 2 eggs, not 6. I'm truly guessing at the serving size as it's not listed. When I made it I did add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of almond as I was leaving out the raisins (can't stand them myself) and it was wonderful, light and only slightly sweet. Next time I'm going to make a vanilla glaze drizzle over it and top with almonds for a prettier presentation.
