Fibre, anyone? This is very easy and good, too. Sometimes I lose track of the point and replace the raisins with chocolate chips.

This was soooo good. Rich, dark, sweet and chock full of raisins. Mine took a little longer to cook - maybe another 10 minutes. I used two different types of raisins for color variety. This loked and smelled great, and tasted ever better. Perfect choice for breakfast and this is a nice accompaniment to a cup of tea. MMMMMM.

This was just ok.. as others suggested the cooking time needs to be increased. I increased it by 10 minutes and I still had a loaf that was a bit uncooked in the middle.

This bread is truly fantastic, rich taste, very filling and healthy! Exchanged the raisins with pumpkin seeds.
