had no 2% so I used my grandson's Green Vanilla flavored milk. local company makes it every year for St. patty's. My family went nuts over it. Very moist, very tasty.
We enjoyed this bread. It had a nice texture and somewhat sweet flavor. I substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and did not add the caraway seeds. I made a nice breakfast bread.
Made first time for St. Paddy's Day lunch as per recipe ... everyone raved over it. 2nd time made for a quilting group but left out caraway seeds and used dried cranberries instead of raisins. Everyone present had to have recipe. My wife has decided that will be a permanent addition to our cookbook!
Exceptional when toasted! Made the recipe as is except omitted caraway seeds and substituted half the raisin with diced plums to cut down fruit sweetness. This is a great "tea" bread and so easy to make. I'd love to make mini-loaves but am unsure of bake time; I guess I'll experiment!
Thanks for a great recipe....
the first time I made this I only used half of the caraway seeda...the second time I used dried cranberries...vey yummy both times...keep this on hand to bake in a hurry to give to neighbors..
