Another of the recipes I have been making for a good number of years, so often a new printout was needed. In doing so found I had missed reviewing. This has become a real family favorite at our house, no surprise as we all love raisins. Find the old fashioned 'mom' recipes are for most part winners as this one is. Made as posted makes for a lovely moist great tasting bar, the glaze one that I often go to when needing to top a sheet cake. Travels well as a 'make and take' - and always an empty pan! Thank you Kathy.

Yummers! These just blew my diet! Oh well, they do have raisins! I made them according to recipe, and they truly are a wonderful and different treat. Mine are like an extremely moist bar/cake. Thank you so much for sharing your childhood treat.

At first I found this sheet cake to be a bit dry, and there was not enough glaze to cover the entire cake. When I mixed the glaze, it came out extremely thick, so I added another 1/2 tablespoon of the boiling water, but it only seem to cover about one quarter of the cake. I ended up tripling the glaze, and added 6 tablespoons of boiling water all together. While the cake seemed a bit less dry the 2nd and 3rd day later, I still found the cake just didn't seem to wow me. I'm sorry, I can only give this cake a 2 star rating.

Really excellent cake. Gets better by the next day. It keeps so well, if you can keep it around for any amount of time. Moist and chewy, just great!

These are great. I used 1/2 soft brown sugar and 1/2 dark muscavado sugar, substituted the cinnamon for mixed spice, and the butter and shortening for margarine. Also changed the raisins to 3/4 cup with 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 cup dried blueberries and subbed honey for the corn syrup. I made these at about 9 last night and now at 11pm there are two left! My sister's already addicted and she hates cakes with fruit in! Thanks for a great recipe.
