- PREHEAT oven to 350F. Spray an 8 × 8-in. baking dish with oil. Line with parchment, with overhanging sides. Stir bourbon with raisins in a bowl. Microwave on high, stirring every min, until bourbon is absorbed, 3 to 4 min.
- WHISK flour with baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk butter with sugars, eggs and corn syrup in a large bowl. Fold flour mixture into egg mixture until no streaks remain. Stir in raisins and 1/2 cup pecans. Scrape into prepared pan. Smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans.
- BAKE in centre of oven until a tester inserted into centre comes out clean, 30 to 35 min. Cool in pan on a rack.
Kid-friendly tip: Replace bourbon with 1/4 cup water and 1 tsp vanilla.
