This cake baked nicely and the texture and moistness is extraordinary! The plumping of the raisins really makes it. I did think it was a little too sweet even without the topping and will cut down the Splenda by 1/4 cup next time. I was interrupted while mixing this up and forgot to add the nuts in the batter after pouring it into the pan. I decided just to sprinkle them on top and it came out very nice looking. Mine baked for 28 minutes in an 8x8 pyrex pan.
