Directions

  1. Scald milk.
  2. Soften yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Pour scalded milk over sugar, shortening, and salt in a bowl. When lukewarm, blend in raisins and 1 cup flour.
  4. Stir in yeast and beat well. Add 3 cups flour, continue beating until smooth. Beat in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn on lightly floured surface; let rest about 5 minutes.
  5. Knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl; turn to bring greased surface to top. Cover, let stand in warm place until dough is doubled, about 1 hour.
  6. Punch down, cover, and let rise again until almost doubled in bulk.
  7. Turn on lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half; let rest 5 to 10 minutes.
  8. Shape into loaves. Place in 2 greased loaf pans 9 1/2 x 5 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  9. Bake in a 400 degree F (205 degrees C) oven for about 50 minutes.

This one was ok. We have lost our grandmother's raisin bread recipe, and I wanted something a lot like it - a white dough that you let rise before baking. This was the closest I could find. It did pretty well; getting all the softened yeast off the bottom of the bowl, to dump it into the dough mixture, is tricky. It might be better to dump the rest onto the yeast, since missing some yeast can be a big problem. If you can plan the time, this is a nice and simple treat...but, it's not my favorite.

I made this recipe for a fondue party and received a lot of compliments. It held up well for dipping. The only changes I made was to use approximately 5 cups of bread flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour (instead of 6 cups of all-purpose flour) and I only used about 1 1/2 cups of golden raisins (instead of 2 cups of regular raisins).

i added 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, and soaked the fruit first. i came back into the kitchen after 30 minutes because i could smell burning! when i took the bread out of the oven it was burnt on the outside and still uncooked on the inside. it smelled very good though. next time i will reduce the temperature when cooking. looked good too though!
