About this recipe: This is an easy one-bowl cake that isn't too sweet and is studded with raisins. Perfect alongside a cup of tea or coffee. You can use currants, sultanas or other dried fruits in place of the raisins.
I used more raisins instead of walnuts and sprinkled the top with demerara sugar for a nice crunch. delicious! - 29 Jul 2012
The mixture looked very wet but the cake turned out well. It was surprisingly dark in colour, like ginger cake, but very light like a sponge. The recipe starts with 'heat the oven' but that is too early as you have to boil the raisins for 10 minutes, then let them cool, before adding the rest of the ingredients. So the kitchen gets very hot too soon! - 19 Nov 2013
Tried this recipe this morning, I'am not fussed on walnuts so replaced with sultanas and also added some mixed spice, turned out prefect!! - 09 May 2012
