I found this in an old magazine and if it's good enough for Robert Redford, then it's good enough for me! Seriously, what red-blooded American woman wouldn't want to break bread with Robert Redford?

So easy to make and tasty too! My bread baked for 50 minutes, rose nicely and the finished product is just great. I used light molasses and for the rest made it just as stated. The bread is easy to cut, does not crumble and has a nice hint of sweetness from the raisins and molasses. It is good with cream cheese, yellow cheese and just plain too.
Very pleased I decided to make this.
Thanks for posting.
