Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a 20x30cm pan. Sift together the flour, bicarb soda, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Set aside.
In a saucepan, combine raisins and 1 cup (250ml) water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cold water and copha. Stir into the flour mixture until well blended. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
Always on the look out for egg-free cake recipes for my 4yo and he has declared is "the best cake ever". Can't come with a higher recommendation than that! Super easy to make too even with two pre-schoolers helping. Love it! - 11 Jul 2012
