This loaf, full of sultanas and raisins, is light in colour and tastes great with butter. Also makes lovely toast.
I made muffins out of this recipe. I used melted butter instead of margerine and buttermilk instead of regular milk. This was good but I think it could use some spices--cinnamon and a little nutmeg, too, maybe. Perhaps half white sugar, half brown sugar. I think that's what I was missing. The kids and I liked it but it wasn't our favorite quick bread recipe. I got 12 muffins out of this recipe. 350* for just about 20 minutes and they were ready to go. Next time, I'll add some spices. - 21 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Raisins tend to sink to the bottom of this loaf. But I did like the overall flavor. - 21 May 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wonderful bread that's bursting with raisins! I used 1/2 cup of Land O Lakes light butter to ensure it would be moist. I also doubled the vanilla, added 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 2 Tbsp. of molasses. I topped it with some turbinado sugar before popping it into the oven. It smelled great while baking and tasted even better! - 03 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
