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.
