This recipe turned out absolutely PERFECT in my Oster bread machine! I used the same ingredients/amounts as given in the recipe, no more, no less, all liquids at room temp - it rised perfectly & the color, texture, & moisture were all perfect, too. The only thing I did differently was while the first knead & rise cycles were going I added about a tsp of water to the raisins to help break them apart (the water was absorbed by the time they were to be added during the 2nd knead cycle). I set my machine on the 1 1/2 lb "sweet" bread setting. I used "Better for Bread" flour, bread machine yeast, clover honey, & Vietnamese cinnamon. It's not a super-sweet bread dessert-like bread, the sweetness was perfect for my taste, yummy toasted with butter, & also can't resist nibbling on it absolutely plain. When I make this again (and I WILL!) I might or might not add more raisins depending on if I'm in the mood for "raisin bread" or "bread with raisins." This bread would make delicious French toast, though that'll have to wait for the next loaf as this on won't last until breakfast tomorrow. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!
