Not sure. I ran out of cupcake papers. So, I made a small cake and 24 cupcakes.
As for the amount of sweetener and adding raisins, the raisins won't make it sweeter. If you cut the sweetener in half, then the mollasis would dominate, like boston brown bread. I think it would still be pretty tasty. You might also want to decrease the oil further still and add an equal amount of applesauce as the oil you deleted. But that might make it gooey. I'm not sure. If you use honey in place of the sugar or splenda, you can decrease the amount used as honey has more sweetening power than does sugar. Maple syrup would be a great flavor with this cake as well. Or, instead of a cream cheese icing (if you use icing at all on this), make a butter cream with maple syrup as the sweetener.
Hope your cake turns out as moist and good as mine did. Enjoy.
