Pecan Raisin Bread

We love raisin bread and also enjoy the nutty flavor of pecans, so I decided to combine the two for this delectable loaf. It smells terrific and the taste…oh-so good! —Lora Sexton, Wellington, Texas

    I have an older machine and this didn’t work. I thought 4cups of flour was excessive, but I tried it anyway. Will try again with less flour. It just didn’t mix the dough completely.

    The only adjusting I did was use cranberries. The only problem with the recipe was i just ate the whole thing warm with about half a stick of butter.
