I, too, made some changes but this is a terrific cake. I soaked my raisins in Courvoisier and then used the soaking liquid to mix with the baking soda. Instead of vanilla, I used a tablespoon more of Courvoisier and also a little bit of Vanilla Bean Paste, which I happen to keep around. I used Macoun apples, which look a lot like small MacIntoshes, and I used 4 of them. Macouns are terrific apples. I have tried numerous apple cakes and most were so-so. This is outstanding. Next time I will try cutting the sugar by 1/2c. Plain whipped cream is really nice as an accompaniment.
