Wow! I am so glad I made this cake! I baked this in a bundt pan, but wasn't sure there would be enough batter since the recipe suggested using one 10-inch cake pan. However, it was most certainly a full-size cake. It was great just a couple of hours after I made it, but the texture changed and made it even better after several hours longer. For this reason, I will bake this several hours ahead of time in the future. I have to admit that I used a variation of Naples' glaze instead of the icing in the recipe (maybe this had an effect on the resulting texture change?), but it would be terrific with a cream cheese frosting as well. I used cream instead of half&half in the glaze (Naples' recipe) and used quite a bit more than a dribble. But after I brushed it on the cake, it really soaked in and definitely added something special. PS. I omitted the raisins and didn't miss a thing.
