Rum raisin loaf

    3 hours 30 min

    This bread is a little sweeter and richer than your typical fruited loaf. For best results, soak the raisins in rum overnight and measure the raisins after soaking.

    Altered ingredient amounts. leave the raisins soaking until all or most of the rum has been absorbed  -  08 Jun 2009


    Used different ingredients. This was a great bread. It was very moist but not too sweet. I substituted currents for the sultanas, they worked very well.  -  18 Jul 2008
