This is the kind of cake I’d eat for breakfast! It tastes a little bit like a raisin bran muffin, but in a cake form. It’s easy to make and so, so good!
I used golden raisins, but feel free to substitute with whatever raisins you have in your pantry. You can also leave off the icing sugar (aka powdered sugar) if you want it less sweet.
This cake did not last long in my house. In fact, it was gobbled up so quickly that John was too slow and didn’t get to try a piece. I may have had more than my fair share. Oops!
Is it a dessert or breakfast – you decide. Either way, it’s still a darn good cake to eat at any time of day!
