I maded this cake for a church pot-luck, and everyone loved this! This tasted great! I will add this recipe to my own family cookbook. I did not use the raisins, but I am sure that would be okay. Judy from Houston, TX

Made this for the office and it was a BIG HIT. The icing can be used on any autumnal baked goodie: pecan pie, pumpkin pie, brownies, or even apple pie!
