Raisin Bread

Monday, March 10, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! I love raisin bread and I just love the thought of sharing my recipe with you! Take a look!


7 oz wholewheat flour
4.4 oz all-purpose flour
5 oz raisins
7.5 oz milk, at room temperature
3.2 oz honey, warm
1 oz butter, melted
1/2 egg
1/2 Tbsp dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt


In a large bowl, combine the two kinds of flour, the yeast, raisins and salt.
In another bowl, combine the honey, butter and milk and whisk them together.
Add the egg and whisk again, until all the ingredients combine.
Pour the liquid mixture into the flour-raisins mixture and blend with a spoon. Using your hands, knead the dough for 3-4 minutes.
Place the dough into an oiled bowl; sprinkle with some flour, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubles its size.
Take the dough out onto a floured surface and split in 8 pieces. Form each piece in round breads.
Layer a baking tray with grease proof paper and place the raisin bread.
Bake in preheated oven at 350F. for 15 minutes, until the raisin bread is cooked throughout. Enjoy!

Raisins are a great source of iron! Do you get enough iron in your diet? If so, from what foods? Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon
