"Not only is this bread high in fiber and low in fat, but it's moist, rich, delicious and filling," assures Susan Lane of Waukesha, Wisconsin. Sweet plump raisins and crunchy pecans make this whole wheat loaf an instant favorite.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugars, baking soda and salt. Stir in buttermilk and eggs just until moistened. Fold in raisins and nuts.
  2. Pour into two 9x5-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
