"This bread is so tasty because the raisins soak overnight and then release their moisture into the bread as it bakes. It's a great bread for raisin lovers."

Soaking the raisins is great! I added some cinnamon and pecans. Very good sliced thick and made into French Toast.

The texture was just a little more cake-like than I hoped, but the flavor was very good. I always soak raisins overnight in regular black tea if I am making fruit bread/cake etc. It's something my gran and mum have always done, and I really like the subtle flavor it gives the fruit. Thanks!

Delicious! Definitely do not forget to soak the raisins; it makes all the difference. I added about 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans, which added a nice touch. Also, I had to bake it for about 1 hr. 15 min. But otherwise it was very easy to make and tasty as well!
