    Too much liquid in the mixture, or cooking too slow. Or both.

    This is an easy problem to solve.

    Simply place the raisins or currants in a small bowl and toss them in flour. Then place them in a strainer and shake the excess flour off them.

    This keeps them from sinking to the bottom of whatever your baking.

    Your cake mix is not the right consistency. Perhaps you are putting too much fruit into your cake? Try soaking them in brandy first....

    because they are heavier than the batter mix! you are best to sprinkle them over the top of the mix before popping it into the oven

    gravity is the culprit.... if it weighs more, it will fall faster....
