Recipe Monday

I actually already posted this recipe before. But since that was when no one read Amityville, and the recipe is so delicious. It's ok to do it again !

Old Fashioned Raisin Square

Preheat your oven to 190 Celsius and grease and line your favourite slice pan, square or rectangle. It doesn't matter!


1 cup of Raisins, Chopped
1 cup of water
125 grams of butter
3/4 cup of caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon of bi carb
1 teaspoon of all spice (or nutmeg or cinnamon or something similar)
1 3/4 cups of plain flour


Put the water and raisins into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Stir in the butter and allow to cool slightly. When it is cooled, beat in the egg. Make sure to do it quickly or your egg will cook a little.

Sift in all of your dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until it is nice and smooth. Pour evenly into a greased pan and cook for 40 minutes.

Take out of the oven and allow it to cool completely, if you take it out of the pan too soon it will fall apart. I like to dust it with icing sugar too.

My suggestions for serving is with an afternoon tea, it goes perfectly with a cuppa! Or for something slightly more decadent, put one of the bars in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream over the top! Yummy!

I really hope that someone in blogland will give this a try and see how delicious it is!

Don't forget to add your link if you're playing along!

I have a stray bag of raisins in my pantry, that have been waiting (and waiting) for a recipe just like yours! Thankyou for sharing. I may just come to love dried fruit with the help of butter, sugar and spice!

I just thought...a lot of recipes you post I would post too! I think I'm going to post my orange cake recipe. Will do so when I get home!

That looks so yum, do you think it would work with dried apricots? the girls are anti raisins. I have joined in this week, and I have tagged you too. Details on my blog.
