Spiced Raisin Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 3-4 hours

Makes

1 loaf (1-1/2 pounds, 24 slices)

I have two bread machines, and one is often busy baking this soft chewy loaf. The bread's nutmeg, cloves and orange peel fill my home with a wonderful aroma. Slices are great for peanut butter sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water(70° to 80°)
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Directions

  1. In bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust color and loaf size if available.
  2. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons water or flour if needed).
