Best Pie! We have had this every Holiday season since I was a little girl. It is now asked for all year round by my friends who have had it.

Flavor was very good but must've missed something as the texture was not custard-like in the slightest and wasn't smooth as it should be.

Wow what a surprise, Excellent. Everyone loved this cake. Next time I will add less raisins but, that is the only change. A winner in our house and among our friends.

I have found I switch up white vinegar in recipes for cider vinegar. I also grind my raisins in the blender first too, the flavor is throughout the whole pie. I love to switch recipes to a blender recipe with all ingredients so will try that with this. Top with a few chopped raisins. Mix the light and dark raisins would look nice!

GREAT pie!! Im not sure how it could be dry.... I dont add the full cup of sugar, I think a little sweet. I like to add a little more raisins, golden & dark raisins. A MUST try. VERY easy to make too.

The texture was very much like the restaurant I was trying to emulate, the flavor was exceptional and the cooking times were exactly right as it was not over nor under cooked. Highly recommend!
