Raisin Bread

Something better to do with raisins for those who aren't crazy about yesterday's post with the raisin pie.....


4 teaspoons yeast
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups raisins
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup warm milk
6 cups sifted flour
4 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons cloves
3 tablespoons cold water

 Dissolve yeast with 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon sugar. Add milk and 2 cups of flour. Add sugar and shortening. Beat until smooth. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hours. Add raisins, salt, and flour. Let rise again. Put loaf tins and let rise 1 hour. Brush with beaten eggs and 3 tablespoons cold water. Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
