This was very good. Sugar-restricted husband enjoyed it very much. I changed the order of combining ingredients mixing dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately and then adding them to the raisin mixture after cooling it slightly. I added some of the hot mixture to the egg mixture before combining together. The batter was a little soupy so I added 2/3 cup of oats. I also increased the vanilla to 1 teaspoon. It was especially good when topped with sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
