Have you tried Homemade Raisin Bread....


I love Raisin Bread! So yesterday when I made some for snacks- I made two- one for me and one for them! - Just kidding! (note to self- be sure to give this to kiddies often so you don't eat all of it!)
Most of my kids love it- except for one little silly billy who has an aught against cinnamon that I can't understand for the life of me! How could you dislike cinnamon!?! Oh well, he says it irritates his tummy so... more for me! ;-)
Making two loaves, one was a little bigger than the other so it had to be baked about 5 minutes longer. The trick is not getting it too dry, since its a sticky dough. But its so worth the trouble!
It smells just like the kind at the store in the red bag- 'cept only better! ;-) It's whole wheat and its loaded with raisins! What could be better- think I'll have some for breakfast! mmm!

i have got to try this, I have a couple that aren't fans of raisins though! I am however and would be afraid I would eat it! LOL

Yeah- I got those too, but this is almost an unavoidable eat! ;-)

Have you tried Brandy's recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies? My kids will gobble them up only saying "we'd like these better with chocolate chips but we LOVE them this way!" ;-) They are VERY good!

Sounds and looks delicious! I may have to give this a try (only I cheat the kneading process by using the dough cycle on my bread machine~I told hubby that without that machine, they probably wouldn't get homemade bread). Where do you get the recipe for the oatmeal cookies? I have a recipe that we like but I'm always willing to try something new! Thanks for sharing~

Tommie Jo,
Kneading by hand is the pits for sure!

Here is the link to those cookies at The Prudent Homemaker's:
