My grandmother used to prepare this loaf with raisins; I love it because it's sweet but not as sweet as traditional cake. The texture is a little different, but still delicious. You can add any type of dried fruit to the mixture. You can also add small pieces of nuts. I invite you to try it out and let me know what you think! MORE + LESS -
