This is an attractive and delicious combination of two excellent types of cake. I found this years ago in a magazine ad for raisins.

A very nice casual cake! It is not as light as many upside down cakes I have had, but it was delicious and beautiful. I used half regular raisins and half golden raisins; I liked the combination! Thanks pattikay.
