Delicious! Very rich, moist texture! The best raisin bread I have ever had, and a big hit with my co-workers!

The dough was so wet and gluey that the breadmachine couldn't incorporate the raisins at all. I had to stop the breadmaker to incorporate more flour and knead it by hand. This recipe's ratios need some work.

I did this in mini loaves and used in a holiday gift pack of four breads. I'm getting orders from my friends for a whole loaf. They love it.

This is a great recipe. I've made this one many time & given it for gifts. Everyone who has tasted it, raves.

Wonderful soft texture and light flavor.

This was a great bread. It was very moist but not too sweet. I substituted currents for the raisins, they worked very well.

I've made this bread many times now using my trusty bread machine, and it's a hit every time. Last night I decided to make another loaf but didn't have heavy cream on hand, so I substituted it with plain yogurt. It's much softer and the flavor is wonderful as usual. I won't be buying any store bought raisin bread for a long long time!

Definitely a keeper! I saved the rum from marinating the raisins and used it in place of part of the water in the bread. Keeps well and stays moist.
