I ordered a 9X9 square springform pan, and this recipe was attached to it. I did make a few changes to the top of it, but the ingredients and measurements stayed the same. I changed how the raisins were done, by doing them in the microwave, instead of waiting for 2 hours to let them soak as suggested in the original recipe. I also changed the way it was put together, and the results were very pleasing and tasty. My husband was happy & that made me happy. The original recipe did not have a frosting, but I added one as I did the Cherries and the chocolate drizzle. Moist Tasty & filled W/ raisins
