Better Homes and Gardens Raisin Sweet Bread
This recipe has 13 ingredients. It takes approximately 4 hours of prep and baking and makes 40 servings. The ingredients are basic and I either already had or I was able to find at my local grocery store. The original recipe uses golden raisins, which I used since my family loves them, but regular raisins would also work. Instead of bread flour I used the all-purpose flour that I already had in my pantry. I had no problems with rising or texture, so the all-purpose flour worked fine Be careful to watch the bread to prevent over browning, I had to tent my bread earlier than the recipe suggested. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
My two boys loved this bread. It has a sweet taste and looks great after being baked. It makes three large loaves, so it would be great for entertaining. The ingredients could easily be modified to suit your tastes, substituting regular raisins, using all whole milk instead of whipping cream etc. This recipe would work particularly well for a holiday breakfast or brunch.
