It was very good and moist. I did use pecans instead of walnuts and I didn't add raisins. Everyone in my family liked it.

Very moist cake. I substituted mini chocolate chips for the nuts and raisins, delicious.

This is an excellent cake! It is amazingly moist and delicious. I made this as a loaf instead of a Bundt cake. I also preferred to leave out the raisins and increase the pecans to 1 cup. It's great on its own, but if you spread a slice of the cake with a little Nutella, it's a piece of heaven!
