  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 9-by-13 inch cake pan with melted butter and chill in the refrigerator until required.
  • Beat tahini, sugar and orange zest 10 minutes, then gradually beat in the orange juice and orange-blossom water.
  • Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, soda and allspice. Sift again and fold into the tahini mixture. Stir in the walnuts and raisins.
  • Dust the chilled cake pan with flour and turn batter into the pan. Spread evenly and knock base of pan on a counter to settle.
  • Bake about 45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Invert cake pan onto a cooling rack and leave for 2 to 3 minutes before lifting pan from cake. Cool and cut into squares.
