Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Susan generally does not like raisins in baked things... scratch that - Susan never prefers raisins in baked things. Nevertheless, I persist in adding them to recipes like this, because I cannot fathom NOT liking them. Still- this can be made without the raisins or frosting... much less delicious, but more Susan-like.
