Orange-Raisin Toasting Bread

"This tasty no-knead bread is so easy, it almost makes itself," chuckles Virginia Doyle of Pinedale, Wyoming. "With raisins and a hint of orange flavor, It's wonderful toasted for breakfast or anytime of the day with tea. I like to keep some on hand to share when friends stop by our ranch."
