Citrus Raisins Breakfast Cake

Citrus Raisins Breakfast Cake

Remember the Lemon Poppy Seed Bread? I must say I am becoming a fan of the citrus flavor; hence the two citrus cakes back to back. When it’s done right, it has a soothing taste. Why not combine your love of citrus and sugar in one pan?

In addition to the Lemon Poppy Seed Bread, my friends let me introduce to you the Citrus Raisins Breakfast Cake. It’s full with all sort of goodness.

To get you started, here’s what you’ll need:

3 cups flour

1 cup sugar

Orange peel from 1 orange

Lemon peep from one large lemon

4 tsp dried rosemary leaves

1/2 tsp salt (left) and 1 1/2 baking soda (right)

2 large eggs

1 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup butter melted

1/4 cup raisins

Then pour the citrus glaze over the cake, and let it sit aside for at least 10 minutes before service.

Look at tall this goodness!
