A spicy raisin bread made in a bread machine. Eat it fresh or toast it for your own homemade raisin toast.
I made this bread today in my bread machine and it's very good. I added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar, and a 1/4 cup extra raisins. The crust was slightly crunchy, and the bread is a little chewy and delicious. - 17 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I think the 2 T should read "vital wheat gluten", the part that creates bread that rises higher(that's what I used). I used molasses instead of the brown sugar, and replaced 1 cup of flour with whole wheat flour. Nice looking and great tasting bread! - 13 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I didn't make this loaf exactly as recommended, making the following big changes for my Fruity Loaf: Used 1/3 cup prepared mincemeat and enough water to make 1 1/8 cup liquid; didn't have milk powder, added only 1/3 cup raisins plus 1/3 cup chopped dates, and what I thought was pumpkin spice equivalent. It didn't rise real high but boy was it delicious with butter or cream cheese! - 22 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
