4. Baking: 6. Grease a rectangular mold and pour the batter into it.

  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC (340ºF) and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

5. Cooling: 8. Let the cake cool in the pan for 5 minutes, and then turn it out onto a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

6. Optional: 9. If desired, you can sprinkle a pinch of icing sugar on top before serving.

Enjoy your homemade Rum and Raisin Cake! It’s a delightful treat with the rich flavors of rum and sweet raisins.
