Ana Colon in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin enjoys whipping up a batch of these down-home delicious raisin bars for breakfast, coffee breaks or dessert. “They couldn’t be much quicker or easier to make,” she says.


  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Place the raisins in a bowl; cover with boiling water. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla; beat just until blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in raisins.
  3. Pour into an 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
