Bake for 30 minutes

Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 15 minutes before runing a knife around the outside edge and turning out onto a rack to cool.

Let cool completely.

You may leave as 2 layers or for more of a torte effect, slice each horizontally into 2 layers making 4 total..

Fill and frost cake with Honey Cream Cheese frosting. (See recipe)

Decorate with chopped nuts or make mounds of orange colored cream cheese frosting on the top, chill till firm and insert small sprigs of sugared rosemary to look like planted carrots.

This has got to be the easiest cake ever. Not being a big fan of cooked raisins I opt for the crushed pineapple instead since it tends to cook down into the cake and adds great moisture.
