I love this easy spice cake...It needs no icing and is so moist. Great to serve with early morning coffee or after dinner dessert. It was in a recipe book I received years ago as a wedding gift. Everyone loves it....mmmmmmmm

I don't usually like raisins but this was great! I used Splenda and it was plenty sweet. Thanks for the great recipe!

I'm not usually that fond of spice cakes, but we enjoyed this one, especially with the raisins included! And as indicated, it IS easy to make! Was great lightly toppeded with a cherry-cranberry sauce I'd recently made! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my A ONE theme in My-3-Chefs]
