My Individual Golden Raisin Syrup Sponge Cakes

Norma DeRemer


This is another one of my old recipes I found looking through my recipe box. These little guys a so moist and deliciues and so easy to make. I remember the kids coming from playing and wanted something sweet. Having these on hand was a great treat for them. They are good even cold. I remember my daughter little friends eating them with their fingers LOL never mind a bowl or dish.
