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.

This is very good and a perfect way to get your fiber in the morning. I'll be sending my husband to work with a slice of this to have on his way to work. I had it in the oven for 40 minutes and it wasn't quite cooked in the middle so I'll be sure to cook it longer next time. I added nuts and next time I'll try blueberries or strawberries because I think they'd make a nice addition. I love that this is so healthy.

Oh, Jenny, this was so good! I love bran muffins and have been looking for a healthy bread and this was just perfect. I kept thinking that there had to be a misprint b/c there wasn't any eggs or butter (other than in the milk, of course), but it turned out so well. I had to use up some strawberries so I substituted them in for the raisins. It was super moist even the next day. Can't comment on how well it would keep after that. I have a feeling it will never last longer than a day or two... :) Thanks! Update: This has become a weekly/bi-weekly staple in our house. It is such an adaptable recipe (melon, banana, berries, cranberries all work well) and a great healthy snack or breakfast. Oh, and talk about easy! Thank you, thank you!

This bran loaf is delicious. I made mine without raisins and it was perfect. Not too moist, definately not dry. I like the fact that there is NO white flour in this recipe. Bran is the main ingredient, thats why I chose it. Very easy to make too, no cup cake pans to fill. Love it!

This was so easy and so good. And healthy too. I used succanat instead of the brown sugar, and dried cranberries and slivered almonds. It almost reminds me of banana bread. Makes a good quick breakfast, I'll make this often. Thank you!

Yummy. Since I never have buttermilk on-hand, I substitute 1tbsp of vinegar in each cup of milk and it comes out perfectly.

I followed the recipe without altering any of the ingredients and this bread came out excellent. I needed about another 15 minutes cooking time in my oven. It is a moist bread with a nice density to it. Not as dense as I thought a bread made with only whole wheat flour would be. I love raisins and the bread had plenty for me. Definitely will make again. thanks for the nice healthy recipe.
