Beat in, one at a time, room temperature eggs. Add and cream in the sugar. Stir in the chocolate. Drain and add the raisins, reserving the liquid. Add enough milk to the reserved liquid to bring up to 7/8 cup. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture in thirds alternating with the milk mixture. Stir the batter until it's smooth. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for an hour. Ice the cake when it has cooled.
