DIRECTIONS

  • Place raisins in cold water and bring to boil, then drain.
  • Measure raisins after draining.
  • Cream butter, sugar and shortening.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with wine.
  • (Batter will turn a grayish color- no problem, it looks normal when baked).
  • Stir in raisins and nuts.
  • Bake in 3 greased and floured 9x5x3 loaf pans at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
  • Cool in pans 10 minutes before turning out to cool on wire racks.
  • Just before serving, sift powdered sugar over top of bread.
  • Note: I like to bake these in mini foil pans (cooking time will need to be adjusted) and use them as a part of my cookie tray to give to friends at Christmas.
