Are you supposed to drain the raisins before adding them? I'm guessing that the small amount of liquid here may make it a moot point, but I wasn'...

...t sure. Thanks

You're right...the amount is small, so probably moot.
That said, there might not be ANY liquid left. So, no problem.
If there is SOME left and you want a drier cake, drain the liquid (but don't throw it out - use it in some other dish, like yogurt or fruit salad), then proceed with the raisins in the cake recipe.

Or if there is some liquid left, just spoon the raisins into the recipe when they are called for, and if some liquid goes with them, ok.
