      I made this as a preview for Easter. I did not have golden raisins so used regular, and used an organic yeast. I had a problem getting this to rise due to the organic yeast so will be using good ol fashioned yeast next time. Everyone who has had a piece of this lovely bread loved it, and when I toasted it for breakfast this morning I received raves. Thank You Lyn for a fantastic bread which I will be making for Easter Morning breakfast. Made for Bargain Basement Event.

      I remade this before I reviewed this due to the bread not rising that well. The second time was much better. On both times, I used butter, maple syrup, and regular flour. Not sure what happened the first time, but the second time the bread rose very nicely. By using the maple syrup, we thought the bread had a very nice flavor, had some for dessert tonight, and the leftovers will be used for a nice breakfast. Anyone wanting to make this I would recommend using the maple syrup. It is well worth it. Made for PRMR tag.
