The original recipe called for Whisky and the name was supposed to be "Whisky Finger". But I don't have Whisky, only have Brandy at home, so improvised. According to the recipe, I was supposed to soak the sultanas/ raisins overnight, but I wanted to serve this as tonight's after dinner dessert, hence only managed to soak the raisins for 1 hour plus, so some of the raisins were not that plump yet. I've also reduced about 10ml of brandy just in case it's too strong, but after trying them, I think it's fine to have the full amount in.
My Auntie who's a fan of raisins of course love this cake. Everyone tried this and I thought there was a fair amount of liking towards this butter based cake and the brownies I made. Packed some for aunt to bring back because she said she couldn't fit anymore in her stomach but was really liking them. Kept one slice for mum, 4 slices for tasters and the rest were all gone.
This would be a good recipe to turn into a Rum and Raisins cake. Had just asked MC to pick up a bottle of rum for me at the duty free when she travels to/ back from Amsterdam.
