This wholemeal cake is super easy - you do not have to cream butter and sugar or beat the eggs. You simply boil the raisins, margarine and sugar together and add the flour to it. So very simple and absolutely lovely.
Altered ingredient amounts. Used Spelt flour - 02 May 2011
Rather a 'wet' cake. Very tastey - 02 May 2011
We used apple sauce as a butter substitute and it was a wonderful taste addition--just took a few extra minutes to cook through. This cake is quite tasty for those of us used to turbinado & whole wheat! We decorated our circumfrence with berries & it made for a wonderful congratulations cake for my 3 1/2 year old who just started to READ! :-D Will make this regularly--thank you! No eggs! What a treat. - 23 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
