We are currently experiencing an unimaginable raisin bread overdose at the house. We've eaten as much as we can handle and still have a 3-day old loaf that hasn't been touched yet. Blaspheme!
I've been loving the Cinnamon Raisin Bread recipe from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. I baked a loaf to give to the couple that lives just north of us. We walked over the other night and had a nice chat with Lois and Don who have lived in the area for at least 7 decades. Their oldest son now runs the farm which has been in the family for six generations!
Lois even called a few days later to get the recipe, saying she had never had better raisin bread. She absolutely made my day; I've been full of baking pride for days!
