“A good pound cake with raisins. To keep the raisins from sinking to the bottom, dredge them in flour before you stir them in.”

Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk and hot water, mixing just until incorporated. Stir in the raisins.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

I threw in some chopped glace cherries as well, and did not have lemon essence so just grated some lemon rind. The guys at work thought it was a nice normal cake for a change instead of the chocolate or rich cakes that I usually take in. Sue



Pretty good. I made this cake for my neighbor, whose bday is tomorrow. I know she likes lemon pound cakes so I thought I would try this for her. She seemed to really enjoy it. I didn't frost it bc I didn't want it to be too messy, but it's nice even without frosting. She really seemed to enjoy it. It is a bit dry, but maybe some sour cream or something would address that. She said she would have some for breakfast tomorrow with coffee; it is a bit like a breakfast coffee cake, so it's a hit. :o) Thanks for the recipe!



I baked this cake following the recipe. I just added a bit more milk than it said and a few more drops of lemon extract b/c I could tase the flavor of the uncooked flour. Still, the recipe was amazing!!!
