  1. Preheat oven to 180º C, 350º F. Line a 7 x 11 inch baking pan with baking paper ensuring the sides hang slightly over.

  4. Next, gently pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Combine until you have a smooth and creamy batter. At this point, you can gently stir in the walnuts and raisins. 
  5. Pour the batter into the baking pan then use the spatula to evenly spread the mixture. Next, evenly distribute toppings over the batter.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes on the middle shelf or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, leave to cool slightly for 10 minutes on wire rack then gently remove from the baking pan. Cut into 12 portions and Serve warm or at room temperature.
