“I got this when I attended a bible school in Rocky Mount, VA. One of my fellow students passed it on to me, after I begged her for it. I have made these numerous times, and they are always great. Beware, if you don't like raisins, you won't like this. It has TONS of raisins in it. Also, I had to guess at how many servings this made, I can't remember.”
