"Very tasty, moist and not too sweet. Made for men on church workday - they gobbled it down and said "much better than Dunkin Donuts!"

"If I want to use vegetable oil instead of butter to make the cake moister, how much oil should I use?"

"This is a good recipe, but the cake could use more of the crumbled mixture and i had a problem with sinking raisins in the batter...they were all at the bottom. Otherwise, i thought it was pretty good."
