Vanilla Raisin Bread
2/3 cup raisins soaked in 3 tablespoons vanilla for at least one hour *
1 ¼ cup buttermilk (or plain milk soured with a tsp of white vinegar)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons sugar
3 ½ cups all purpose or bread flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1 ½ teaspoons yeast
1. Select basic or SWEET setting.
*If you don’t have the time to soak the raisins ahead of time (I never do) just microwave the raisins and vanilla for 1 minute on high or med-high in a micro-safe bowl.
