I have been making this recipe, without nuts or raisins, since the beginning of time, OK since 1970 (when I was 9). My instructions were to combine all dry ingredients, make a well in the center, add all the wet ingredients, then mix. Also, the instructions were clear about cooling, wrapping in plastic and refrigerating the loaves overnight for optimum moistness. I have also tinkered with this endlessly to make it more Weight Watchers friendly (low fat, high fiber). For the low fat version, change the 3.5 c flour to 2 c white, 1.5 c whole wheat flour. Reduce sugar to 2 cups. Reduce oil to 1/4 cup. Add 3/4 c unsweetened applesauce. Increase water to 3/4 cup. No nuts or raisins. works every time. Makes a zillion muffins at 2 points each. Or bread, makes 2, 9x5 loaves. But who can eat just ONE slice?!
