    Color Guard Mom's Note:

    My mom always made this cake at Christmas time. She would cut it in bar size pieces and put it with the Christmas cookies. It was always one of my favorites, and my dad's as well. Don't over bake and make sure you keep it in a air tight container until you are ready to eat. Measurements for the frosting are approximates. Only add enough water to make the glaze easily spreadable. These can be frozen for a couple weeks.

      HOW ABOUT THIS ~ A cake especially for those of us who LOVE raisins, & lots of them, at that! Was gonna make this cake to share with neighbors, but now I've decided to keep it all, freeze some to see how that goes, & EAT THE REST OF IT MYSELF! This is very, very tasty, & definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my RAISIN theme in the current My-3-Chefs event]
