About this recipe: This simple cake is easy to make and everyone will love it. It's flavoured with coffee, allspice, cinnamon and dotted with plump raisins.
Made it healthier. 30 teaspoons of sweetener instead of sugar - 10 Feb 2011
Thanks for this very tasty recipe. I should have done as the recipe says and sieved the dry ingredients. I didn't and ended up with small lumps of flour, so others in a hurry, take note. Will definitely make again, properly! - 06 Nov 2013
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't tried it. Rich, moist, and so light! I added an extra 1/2 cup raisins and used 3/4 c. white sugar and 3/4 c. brown sugar. Finished by sprinkling confectioner's sugar over the cooled cake. A tip to cool the coffee mixture: partially fill sink with cold water; set pan in and stir until mixture cools (which it does quickly!) I also baked the cake in a pyrex 9 x 13 pan; it was done to a "T" after 40 minutes. - 21 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
