Terry says she has made her reputation as a great baker on this cake alone. "I bake this British tea cake every month and many more times during the Christmas holidays. For those who love a good raisin bread, its that and a bit more. For those who dont like fruitcake, it serves the occasion without being sticky and cloyingly sweet--which is most folks complaint with fruitcake. It packs well, keeps its taste, its pretty, and its practically foolproof. You can dress it up with icing, or slice it thin, and have it for breakfast, toasted. It also travels well. I use a long pan, although a bundt pan works well too." Soak the raisins, brown sugar, tea, and whiskey in a large bowl for 12 hours or overnight. The next day, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and allspice and add to the raisin mixture along with the beaten eggs (or egg substitute to make it totally zero cholesterol) and lemon rind. Set oven at 300oF. Put batter into greased pan, and bake for 90 minutes. When done, remove from pan and let cool on rack. You can leave it simple, dress it up with icing, or drizzle with a honey-and-warm-water mixture.
