Dessert Recipes For Raisin Lovers (Haters, Steer Clear)

It's time to stop the hate.

Raisins aren't exactly the most popular food -- in fact, they tend to be on the receiving end of some serious food anger. People are generally unhappy when they make appearances in any sort of dessert, including bread pudding, cookies and trail mix, and there is even a Facebook group where these raisin-haters can swap raisin-hating stories.

But we think this bad rap is undeserved. After all, raisins make the perfect healthy, low fat and energizing addition to your traditional desserts. And oatmeal-raisin cookies aren't the only raisin dessert we can get behind -- we found 19 cakes, ice creams, cookies and more that might just change your mind about this unpopular ingredient.
