Raisin Cake (Gluten Free)

This is one of my favorite cakes, and when I eliminated gluten from my diet I missed it. So, when I experimented withRaisin Cake squares on plate the recipe and found it tasted just as wonderful with gluten-free flours, I was elated! This recipe hasn’t any eggs —  for those who are dairy-free as well. (Be sure to eliminate the frosting or substitute water for milk).
