Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, butter, eggs, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. In a saucepan, bring first five filling ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 15-20 minutes or until almost all the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead for 1 minute. Divide in half. Roll each half into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; brush with egg. Spread half of the filling over each rectangle to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch to seal. Place each loaf seam side down in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Cover loosely with foil if top browns to quickly. Remove from pans to cool on a wire rack. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2013

I tried this once and it was very good, the two types of raisins are a great combo. It is very sweet and it is diabetic friendly it says.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2010

This is the best raisin bread I've ever had, much less made myself! I have to remember to cover the tops with foil because a couple of times I have wound up with very, very dark brown bread. It stilled tasted good, though.
