Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients except raisins to breadmaker in a way that works for you and your particular breadmaker. I like to add all the liquids first then the dry ingredients on top.
  2. Set breadmaker to do a manual/dough cycle (sweet bread).
  3. Check after 5 minutes of kneading. If dough is very sticky, add a small handful of flour. If it's very dry, add a little water. Check again after a few minutes and adjust until you get a nice dough texture.
  4. When cycle completes, remove dough from machine and place on a kneading surface.
  5. Add the raisins. Knead a little, mixing in the raisins.
  6. Shape into loaves. This recipe makes 2 large or 4 small braided loaves.
  7. Place loaves on baking sheets, allowing enough room for loaves to double in size.
  8. Let the loaves rise, covered, until doubled.
  9. Bake at 325F for 30 minutes.
