Spanish Bar Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)

Not bad but it was way too moist!! must have been all the water, and cooking the raisins is the water for 10 mins was too long, they absorbed alot of water, the cake seemed to get wetter the longer it took to cool! and the raisins just seemed wet rather than being juicy. I will try again using less water and some brown sugar and wheat flour as this is how the A&P one is made. It also needs a frosting, I used butter icing sugar vanilla and milk.

I didn't have raisins, so used chopped fresh cranberries, and a chopped fresh apple. Came out great, . Back in the late 40's my Mother used to buy a cake called "Spanish Bar Cake" from the Acme Markets, however that cake did not have raisins in it.

I needed a "Spanish Dish" for my daughter's class (50 extra points) so came here. This cake is SO moist and flavorful ... I didn't use icing, but will try the one suggested by the other reviews next time - though it doesn't need any more flavor. I didn't use the nuts at my daughter's request ... may try them next time, this recipe is definately a keeper.

This is wonderful. I made it last night for a Cinco de Mayo dinner, and everyone loved it. I iced it with the Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting here on the site, and it just complimented it perfectly. Tasted like a bakery cake. I followed the recipe, except I did put my raisins through my food processor, just to chop them up a little bit, and then, I thought that was just a bit too much batter for a 9X13 pan, so I used a 10X16 and it worked out just great. If you do use a bigger pan, adjust your time down about 6 minutes or so.

I love this recipe! I used to find a Spanish Bar cake at my local grocer, then, of course, no more. Their's had a frosting, and I knew it had spice in it, so when I make it, I top it with another recipe I found at this sight called Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting, combine the two together, you have one great cake that even cake haters love! (my son Mike love's this cake, he's not a cake eater) lol
