MY REVIEW

"This bread is hard to rate. There is nothing wrong with the way it tastes, hence my 4 star review, but the description and picture is slightly misleading. Neither the coffee or the spices can really be tasted. I used a strong brewed coffee too. It just tasted almost like a store bought raisin bread, nothing special. I actually made a banana, raisin, nut bread from the site, the other day, that I liked quite a bit better. It also doesn't have that latte color as depicted in the picture, it has that typical raisin bread appearance. NOTE: This does not make a 1 1/2 lb loaf! It makes a 2lb loaf. It wasn't expected due to the size of the dough. That is very important because only Zojirushi and certain machines can handle a 2 lb loaf. I was very lucky because if this would have had even 1 tblsp of flour in it, it would have touched the very top of the lid and deflated. My machine makes standard size loaves of bread. I also don't know how it makes 16 slices. I have a bread slicing guide and electric knife. I got 14 slices. Although, they were hefty slices due to the very tall nature of this loaf. The sized caused difficult toasting. If looking for an all-purpose raisin bread and a 2lb bread machine is available, I would recommend. If a machine is available that only makes 1-1.5 lb loaves and a bread that is different than classic breads is desired than I would look for another recipe to try. ty"

"My husband LIKES this bread!!! Actually, he seems to LOVE it, which is a miracle since he has always been a 1950's Wonder Bread type guy and views any whole wheat or dark-colored bread with suspicion, LOL - and the coffee makes this bread a deep color. I made the dough in my bread machine, then shaped it into a boule and let it rise in my banneton, Result: a very pretty round loaf. When I slice it for the toaster, I keep sniffing it because it smells so old-fashioned and comforting, somehow...and soooo luscious - but I may never get to actually EAT any because hubby is devouring it. He just asked if he could toast a few slices up for a night-time snack and said how GOOD it is! This one is definitely a KEEPER.... I'll be making Coffee Raisin Bread again and again! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!"
