Yield: 2 cakes, 6 slices each Prep 30 mins Rise 2 hrs Bake 350°F 30 mins Stand 20 mins


  • 1/2 cup  dark raisins
  • Boiling water
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup  warm water (105 degree F to 115 degree F)
  • 1/2 cup  milk, heated to lukewarm
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup  sugar
  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2 cup  butter, cut up
  • 1 teaspoon  grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup  oats, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup  firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup  butter, cut up

1. Place raisins in small bowl. Add boiling water to cover; let stand 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry on paper towels. Set aside.

2. Dissolve yeast in warm water in bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add milk, egg, and vanilla. Combine 3-1/2 cups flour, the sugar, and salt in food processor; pulse to blend. Add butter and lemon peel; process until mixture resembles fine crumbs. With machine on, add yeast mixture through feed tube and process until it just holds together, 15 to 20 seconds. Transfer dough to floured surface. Add raisins to dough and knead until smooth and elastic, adding additional flour if necessary, about 10 minutes. Transfer to greased bowl, turning dough to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in bulk (about 2 hours).
