EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Moisture-rich baking raisins are an excellent choice for this recipe, because they are higher in moisture than regular raisins they won't draw as much moisture from the batter as regular raisins would.

If you only have regular raisins, they can be used instead of baking raisins. First, plump them up by soaking in boiling water for 10 minutes, then drain before using.
