With the mixer running on low, alternate between the dry ingredients and the orange juice, mixing until the batter just comes together. Add raisins and mix just until distributed. Divide batter between prepared baking pans and place into the hot oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes then remove from pan and let cool completely before frosting and enjoy.
