  1. Wow! I quartered this recipe and made 3 jumbo muffins which took the full 40 minutes to bake. I also doubled the amount of raisins. This recipe is very similar to banana bread in texture with a thick batter creating a dense cake that is very, very, moist. Even though I forgot to dust them with the confectioners' sugar/cinnamon mix, Buddha went absolutely crazy over them! I too loved them and even smeared them with butter. ;)Thanks so much for posting this recipe Marlitt, we will be making it often. :)
  2. I realize I might have thrown the balance of flavors off in this cake, but as an estreme rasin fan, I just had to double the amount of those buggers in this cake! I also included very rounded teaspoon measures of the zest! VERY, VERY NICE TASTING CAKE, & definitely one I'll make again! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar cooking game]


<p>I live in Canada our winters are far to long and cold. I like to try new recipes. I don't really have a favorite cookbook. I enjoy reading fiction, my friends,good conversation,gardening,and the great outdoors. Love to travel, by plane, boat or automobile. My pet peeves are inconsiderate drivers who stop on a main road holding up traffic. <br />I'd really enjoy spending some time camping IN THE SUMMER by a beach or go the caribbean in the winter-- to the beach at one of the all inclusive clubs they always have a lot of different foods to try.. <br /><br /><a href=><img src=;c=5589268 border=0 alt=HTML Counter /></a><a href=>Dell</a> <a href=>Server Computers</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><br />Participation &amp; Awards:</p> <p><a href=></a></p> <p><img src= alt= /></p> <p><img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag /><img src= border=0 alt=Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket&gt; /></p>
