  • Select the Basic or White Bread setting. There is no need to select Fruit Bread setting, nor to add the raisins in later. Start the machine. After first knead, bread should be smooth, elastic, and dry to touch. Adjust if necessary with additional flour.

  • After baking, remove pan immediately. Rest for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove bread from the pan, and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

I can't even give this recipe a star. There has to be something missing from the recipe. I've made it twice thinking the first time that my yeast was bad. I bought new yeast. It doesn't rise and is yucky when it is baked. Sorry but I won't waste my ingredients on it again until someone tells me what is missing. Read More

I did not like this bread at all. I like big plump rasins in my raisin bread and because this recipe said to just add them in the beginning and not at the "add ingredients" single they were all chopped up. When done you can't even tell it has raisins in it and you can barely taste them. It also needed more cinnamon a bit of sugar and less yeast--it tasted too yeasty and not like the typical raisin bread I'm used to. I will not be making this one again. Read More

The only thing I changed was that I used wheat bread flour. I also doubled the raisins because I love them so much! The recipe is extremely easy with minimal ingredients and great taste! I really enjoyed the bread! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was unusual in that there is no sugar! The raisins provide the sweetener and this is a very good bread. Read More

My husband who can be picky loved it! I had to add more yeast for my bread machine. What I liked best...low sugar low fat and still tastes terrific! Read More

We loved it. I changed it in two ways. I let it rise twice once in the bowl and once in the pans. I also dribbled white icing on one finished loaf. Two of us ate the first loaf in two days! Read More

i really enjoyed the ease of this recipe and the fact that it had no added sugar. i added about a third of a cup of honey to it mixed it in the bread machine and then baked it in the oven because it's always so much better that way. (350 for 25-30 minutes) i also used becel instead of lard. Read More

This recipe was very easy and turned out the best of any bread machine recipe I have tried. I used 1 1/2 c bread flour and 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour. I used butter instead of lard. I also added 1 t. fructose because I was worried that the yeast wouldn't work properly without sugar. The loaf came out light and airy. I love this recipe for a hearty healthy and tasty bread.
