This is world class! I used hickory nuts instead of walnuts and recommend the substitution (if you can find them). I also packed then soaked the raisins in 3-4 T brandy and 1 tsp orange extract overnight and threw the whole lot into the mix. I'll bet Grand Marnier would be even better. I used Brer Rabbit full flavored molassas in the green bottle because I'm partial to the taste but the lighter flavored might be better. Under no circumstances should blackstrap be used. I found that the bread cooked faster than advertised, 48 minutes, but my oven might be hot.
