Raisin Wheat Bread

 Raisin Wheat Bread
"My husband likes dense, hearty breads with a little crunch," says Lorraine Darocha of Mountain City, Tennessee. "So I took a basic wheat bread recipe and added crunchy sunflower seeds plus raisins and honey for sweetness. It's moist and tender but filling, too."
