The No-Fail Raisin Cake Recipe

This week I am posting a no-fail raisin cake recipe that I have made several times over. This recipe is extremely just cant go wrong with it. Just follow the measures as given in the recipe and you will get a yummy, moist cake that your family will love.

Here is the recipe:


Whole wheat flour: 1/2 cup
All purpose flour: 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup
Eggs: 2
Vanilla essence: 1 teaspoon
Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
Baking soda: 1/2 teaspoon
Cocoa powder: 3 tablespoon
White oil: 1/2 cup
Milk: 1/4th cup
Raisins (chopped): 1/4th cup


  1. Beat the eggs well. Add sugar and mix well. Now add oil, milk, and vanilla essence.
  2. In a deep-bottom bowl, add the whole wheat flour, APF, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Now add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in two batches. Mix well till you get a thick, lump-free batter.
  4. Fold in the chopped raisins.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C for 10 minutes. Pour the batter in a greased cake pan. Make sure that batter fills up only half the baking pan.
  6. Tie a wet towel strip around the pan to prevent cracking of the top surface of the cake.
  7. Sprinkle a few chopped raisins on the top surface of the cake.
  8. Bake the cake for 40-45 minutes.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven. Set aside to cool.
  10. After ten minutes, de-mold the cake. Slice the cake and serve with love.
