"This is another great holiday bread to make that belonged to my mother. She sometimes served this one, and it is a very old recipe. This bread is good the first day, but better the second. You may use dates instead of raisins if you wish."

Yummy! I made it as muffins and I made a few changes...I used whole wheat flour and brown sugar, added two tablespoons of applesauce instead of the melted butter, and omitted the orange zest. It was yummy but not terribly sweet...exactly what I was looking for. Excellent! 5 stars. Thanks Carol!


This is one of those breads that is nice and filling. I opted for Cranberries and Pecans for a sweeter taste but I am sure Raisins and Walnuts would have been nice too. Not having to worry about my weight I bathed it in butter and ate myself full.....

Very nice recipe! I doubled the recipe, and used pecans instead of walnuts, and got 3, 4x7 inch loaf pans to use as gifts. I also opted to put a crumble crust on before baking to dress it up. I will be making this one again, maybe with other fruits or nuts.
