A delicious Maine Hermit recipe that I have been making for years. Moist and just the right mixture of spices and raisins. Great with coffee and for dunking! You might be thinking--Where is down east? To Mainers, down east is down in the most eastern part of Maine. To others in the country, down east IS Maine.
