Raisin and Walnut Cake


Nutty and wholesome, this tasty Raisin and Walnut Cake is the perfect tea-time treat!

You may have noticed by now that I prefer my cakes to be packed with fruit and nuts instead of chocolate. I keep a very healthy diet but I believe in treating myself and I definitely have a sweet tooth. So when I’m baking – which I do a lot of! – I just try to keep things on the healthier side, or at least convince myself that’s what I’m doing!

Cakes like this one fit the bill – deliciously soft and light, fragrant with cinnamon and packed with crunchy walnut and juicy raisin surprises. I love to have this with a cup of coffee in the morning or during that afternoon sugar dip when you need a tasty pick-me-up to get you through to the end of the day!

So, how to make Raisin and Walnut Cake?

Steps to make Raisin and Walnut Cake


Heat the oven and prepare a tin


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a loaf tin and dust with flour.


Cook the raisins


Add the raisins and water to a pan over a high heat. Bring to the boil and boil for 10 minutes.


Add the sugars and butter


Take the pan off the heat and add the white and brown sugars and butter. Beat together and leave to cool.


Combine the dry ingredients


Sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl.


Mix the batter


Add the raisin mixture and the nuts to the flour and mix together until well combined.


Prepare the cake for baking


Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin.


Bake the cake


Bake the cake for 35-45 minutes. Test if the cake is cooked by inserting a toothpick into the center; if it comes out clean, the cake is ready.




Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10-15 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Janice Matherly

Made this as a dessert for me and my boyfriend today we liked it a lot but it neds some dressing on the top so we drizzled a bit of caramel, honey and chocolate!! couldnt decide on one so used all 3.

Anneliese Feigelson

SO YUMMY IM OBSESSED!! just needs some sort of frosting and it would be perfect.

Coraline Allrich

My kids love this cake more than the mango and coconut bread which is just as sweet but the crunch of the walnuts gave this one first place in my opinion.

Danica Dicicco

Not going to lie i messed up on the first try and the cake looked like a deflated balloon lol...but second time around I figured out what i messed up and actually baked this to perfection :)

Aiyana Yurasek

Followed the steps exactly and it turned out exactly how I expected just needed a little bit more sweetness so I spread some nutella on it.

Kalani Kechichian

I made a few mini versions of these (shaped them in a heart pan instead of a normal one) they turned out so cute.

Amiya Kubicek

I'd recommend the sponge cakes on here instead they are far more flavorful and the texture is softer.

Maryam Tennesen

Delicious loved it a lot will make it again.

Laylah Etuk

Loved the texture of this cake very flavorful and delicious.

Aryana Gicker

Make sure you whip the mixture good or it's going to turn out clunky and the texture wont be fluffy like it's supposed to.

Lillie Mangabat

Waiting for this to to bake and the smell is heavenly, can't wait to try this out


This was divine and slightly moist on the inside..fantastic.

Collins Lekander

Really tasty and easy to make but does take a while longer than what the estimated time says, worth it in the end because I added some chocolate chips to the inside of it.

Greta Lannie

I'll gladly get fat off of this cake lol super tasty and flavorful plus the crunch is a plus.


Too much cinnamon you need only 1 tsp reather than 2.

Lilyana Klitzing

Tasted more like a sweet bread rather than cake but it wasnt too bad.

Zoya Emore

Needs far more sugar or its very bitter and not so tasty.

Marisol Mihara

Going to try this out today wish me luck!
