Don't Knock It Till You've Tried It Raisin Cake

Yvonne Elliott


I love the Little Debbie Raisin Creme Pie Cookies but they stopped stocking them in our area. So I put together a raisin cake that my family had a fit over. And the icing just perfectly kicked the flavor up a notch. And just like the title says "Don't knock it till you've tried it."

How to Make Don't Knock It Till You've Tried It Raisin Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13" X 9" cake pan with Pam. Put the raisins in a zip lock with 1 1/2 Tbs of flour and shake till they are coated. Then put in a strainer and shake out excess flour. Set aside. This step is to prevent the raisins from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  • 2Prepare the yellow cake mix according to package directions. Spread batter into the cake pan and then sprinkle the raisins all over the top of the batter.
  • 3Bake according to the cake mix directions. When done, remove from oven and cool completely. While cake is cooling, prepare the Creme Icing.
  • 4Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, water,
    powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed for 3 to 5 minutes until fluffy.
  • 5Spread over cake.
    Makes 1 1/2 cups.
