I have now made this cake several times, and it is always a big hit in my house. I agree that it is really banana bread, not so much cake- but as long as you know to expect that it's REALLY good banana bread. One major recipe change: it only takes 45 minutes to an hour to bake, I can't imagine how dry it would be after 1 1/2 hours! Also, I don't have a bundt pan, so I use a baking tray.. a little smaller than 9 X 13. The first time I made it I couldn't find the raisins so I used "fruit bits" instead (little pieces of dried fruit by Sun Maid), and it was incredible, so I've repeated that variation. Once I made it with raisins and it was also good. I think I've always used about half white and half brown sugar. Last time I made it with half the sugar overall so that I could give it to my one-year old- it was less sweet, but still good. The baby loved it and my husband actually liked it that way, but I prefer the sweeter version. And I usually add some nutmeg, because my husband thinks everything with cinnamon should also have nutmeg, and he's the chef around here. I really love this recipe, it is so easy!
