How to make it
- In a small bowl soak the raisins in bourbon for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat oven to 400. Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan.
- Spread pecan halves on a cookie sheet. Bake 5 minutes or until fragrant and toasted. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 375. Coarsely chop the pecans.
- In medium bowl, mix flour, spices, baking powder, and baking soda til blended.
- In large bowl, with electric mixer, beat sugar, oil, eggs, and lemon peel, 3 minutes, until blended and smooth. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture. Batter will be thick. Stir in raisins, bourbon, apples and nuts.
- Scrape into the prepared springform pan. Bake 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool on wire rack 15 minutes. Remove sides of pan and cool completely.
- Wrap in foil and let stand at room temperature for up to three days. Don't skip this step, it really gets better and better as it sits.
