Easy Raisin / Sultana Cake - Margaret Ullrich


I know... I know...  
In November we were all going to bake dozens of cookies and cakes.  
Okay.  We did bake a few.  
Then things got crazy.

Now it's January.  
It's almost guaranteed that you've got a few bags of dried fruit just sitting on the shelves.  

Got raisins?  Got cake.
