More Bible Trivia

I have yet another favorite strange Bible verse, this one quoted in Brueggemann's book!

The LORD said to me again, "Go, love a woman who has a lover and is an adulteress, just as the LORD loves the people of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love raisin cakes." - Hosea 3:1

Raisin cakes?! Whats with the raisin cakes? I have no idea. Does this mean I should only eat chocolate-chip cookies instead of the oatmeal raisin ones? What about granola bars? Ah well, it was worth a laugh in the middle of an intense prophetic book.
