RAISIN CITRUS CAKE, EGGLESS

Photobucket

My son requested to bake a cake for our afternoon tea and for lunch boxes.  Instead of  buying from the store, decided to bake an easy cake using ingredients available in my pantry.  The advantage of baking your own is that you can decide what goes inside, choosing a wholesome and better quality ingredients and make them healthier. My preference goes to easy method and as simple as possible

This is a great and quick cake to make, even tasted awesome without frosting. You can substitute with other fruit like apricot, cranberries or dates. Add more sugar for sweeter version. Here goes the recipe:

I love raisins in everything, particularly cakes! Looks great and what a bonus for those with allergies that there are no eggs.
