This cream cheese raisin cake is a recipe I have from a good friend of mine, and it’s a really delicious one. It’s a sort of cheesecake with raisins and lemon flavor, but assembled differently than a regular cheesecake.
First, you make the cake batter which is quite smooth and creamy, and over it you spread the cream cheese mixture. The cream cheese mixture will blend from place to place with the cake batter.
While baking it forms a delicious golden brown top, and a mix of cake batter and cheese inside. This cream cheese raisin cake is really delicious and very easy to prepare. Your family and friends will definitely love this combination.

Fold in raisins and pour the filling carefully over the prepared base. As the base is pretty moist it will blend a little with the cheese filling.
