Very nice bread. Rises well, nice crust, cuts well. No idea how it stores - It got eaten fairly quickly!
I have not made raisin bread in my bread machine yet and this recipe made wonderful bread. Added the raisins after the first kneading and than a bit later heard the bell ding so no raisins showing in my bread. The flavor of the raisins was good and the cinnamon was just right. Crusty, crunchy top and wonderful texture, a bit of a heavier bread. Another 5 stars Lorie, thank you for posting!
I followed the recipe for the smaller loaf except for subbing 1 c whole wheat flour for 1 c of the bread flour. I also added 1/2 c walnuts b/c I like 'em! :D It smelled lovely rising and baking and turned out to have a great texture and crunchy crust. Flavor was excellent! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll definitely make this again!
This is my first try at raisin bread and it turned out excellent. Great combination of flavors and such a wonderful texture. I used my dough cycle and then moved it to my bread pan and let it rise for about 30 minutes and baked at 350 for 30 minutes. Thanks so much.
Good recipe! I made the large loaf and I am glad I did! I used the dough cycle and finished it in the oven, baked for about 30 minutes at 350F .. I will certainly make it again!
