Maybe not exactly traditional, but very easy and wonderful when toasted and spread with butter. This bread is baked in a loaf pan, and produces a very simple, dense bread loaded with raisins.

This was great!! I followed the recipe exactly, but I had to cook it a little longer as the inside was not done. So, I covered it in foil to prevent the top from burning, but otherwise it was excellent as written!!

Couldn't ask for anything easier or yummier!! I will definitely be making this one again! I think we all liked it even better than cornbread. I did use 2 cups whole wheat flour and one white. Delicious served with Irish stew!!

I made this bread with and without raisin's for St. Patty's Day and my guest and family LOVED it! This recipe is a keeper :)
