This recipe come from our local newspaper's "Recipe Swap". I have tried it and it is really, really good. As a matter of fact, the loaf didn't last more than a day and it was devoured by myself and my husband.
The Recipe Swap tester wrote in her notes that this loaf is Moist, dense and not too sweet, This is a good, easy, quick bread.
I did not add the raisins to my loaf but will try adding them next time. Either way this is a great recipe. I hope you find it so too.
