I was very anxious to try this recipe after reading all the rave reviews, but I am a little disappointed, it was VERY dry, I worked in another 1/4 C milk while I was kneading it just to get it to be of a bread like texture, but it still could have used more. I triple checked the recipe to make sure I had done everything right... I wonder if it is maybe because I am in Alaska? Because the dough was so dry and stiff I know it wont turn out really well but what I am looking for this time is flavor, if I like the flavor then I will continue to make it just adjusting the ingredients. I added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg to the loaf, smells heavenly. Right now it is rising, so I will update later to post my results. Also if you are hand working this bread I would recommend adding the raisins in with all the wet ingredients, it is too hard to work them in while kneading!
