My mother got this recipe from a neighbor 40 years ago. It's a great raisin bread that could be made throughout the year but for our family we keep it special for Easter. Make sure you make this in a huge bowl it's a large batter. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do and add it to your Easter tradition.
