• Sift together the flour and baking powder, then mix into the wet ingredients.
• Stir in the raisins then transfer mixture into a greased bundt tin.
• Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
• Place the sauce ingredients into a pot and heat gently while stirring until dissolved.
