I wish everything was as simple as my "Simple Cake"

This cake is from my mom's recipe's book and it is named just " simple cake". because it is a very simple, simple cake ; not as easy baking but as not having any special ingredients and just being a base cake.
I made this cake so many times and form time to time I do my own special thing to it; like in place of milk I add apple juice with cinnamon spice turning it to an apple cake or added orange juice or coconut milk. really you could do your own thing to it.

Eggs: 4
Sugar: 1 3/4 cup
Milk: 1/2 cup
Butter ( at room temperature) : 3/4 cup
Orange zest: 2 teaspoon
Walnuts (toasted and crushed): 1/2 cup
Raisins ( coated with flour): 1/2 cup
Baking powder: 2 tea spoon
Flour: 2 1/2 cup
Coco powder: 1 table spoon

First step like always heat up the oven to 350F and grease your pan ( or cover it with waxed cooking sheets). in a mixer, mix the eggs with sugar for about 3-5 minutes or till they get light-yellowish color. slowly add the milk and butter. mix for a few seconds, then stop the mixer. add the raisins, walnuts, mix with a spatula. add the flour and baking powder. mix again. now pout half of your batter in the pan. mix the rest of the batter with coco and pour the brown batter on the top of the whit ones. smooth the surface. now you could add something on the top ( definitely something in light color, to contrast with coco) like shredded coconut or sliced almonds. bake the cake for 40-50 minutes or till the stick comes out clean. when it is done, take it out form the oven and let it cool down on a rack. then slice it as you wish and enjoy!
