Raisin Bread Recipe
A delicious homemade raisin bread.


  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup soft butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup scalded milk
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten


Dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine raisins, butter, sugar, salt, and hot milk; stir to dissolve the sugar. Let mixture cool to lukewarm. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the flour; beat well. Add yeast mixture and the beaten eggs; mix to blend well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft but stiff dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly buttered bowl, turning once to grease the surface. Cover with a clean dish cloth; let stand in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down and divide into 2 portions. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Shape into 2 loaves; place in 2 greased 8x4x3-inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise again for about 45 to 60 minutes, until almost double. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, placing foil over loaves the last 10 minutes, if loaves are getting too brown. Remove loaves from pans and let cool on racks.

I used whole wheat flour instead of white and doubled the raisins. It turned out great I'm definitely going to make it again
