I followed the recipe with four changes: I omitted the salt, I used all-purpose flour and added 1 tsp baking powder, I omitted the raisins (we're out), and I added maybe 3/4 or 1 tsp of lemon ex...

Great cake! I took the advise of others and did not use any additional salt. Unsalted butter would have been better though and I will use it next time. My grandmother used to make this cake ma...
