Amazing! My 4-year-old granddaughter helped me bake this as a surprise for her gluten-free father. I was dubious of how it would turn out (so I baked the regular one as an option for the rest of us!). But it turned fabulous - it had a more delicate, cake-like crumb but I felt it was a real success! I will be happy to tuck this recipe away for any time I have gluten-free needs at my table. ** I halved the recipe and put it in an 8-inch cake pan and it fit perfectly.) Thanks so much!
I had to make this twice. The first time I used a round cake pan because the recipe didn't specify the type of pan, and it was way too short. Glad I had a baking sheet under it! The second time I used a round casserole dish and that worked better. I used Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour mix. It was pretty crumbly, but tasted good. If I made it again I'd try mixing the raisins in the dry ingredients instead of the wet to see if it kept them from sinking to the bottom.
