    I didnt have any raisins so I subbed chopped prunes. It came out tasty, but I was hoping for a more soft, gooey bread.

    This bread gets 5 stars for flavor and texture. I did have issues with the bread not rising properly, but I think it might have something to do with the cold weather. Also baked these at 350F for 35 minutes.
