Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Kathy Przywara


2 cups warm water
2 pkgs yeast
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup whole wheat flour
6 cups unbleached white bread flour
1 Tbsp grated orange rind (optional)
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger
1/2 cup softened margarine
2 cups raisins


In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add eggs, spices, salt, half of brown sugar, and half of flour to yeast mixture. Mix thoroughly. You can use a wooden spoon and lots of elbow grease, or a Kitchen Aid with a dough hook. Add softened margarine and beat for 2-3 minutes. Add remaining dry ingredients and beat until smooth. This will be a sticky batter. Stir in raisins. Cover bowl and let rise until doubled.

Butter/grease two 5×9″ loaf pans. Punch down batter and divide evenly between loaf pans. Cover pans and let rise until batter reaches top of pans.

Bake at 375 °F for 40-50 minutes until loaves are golden and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and rub top of loaves with butter or margarine. This keeps the crust softer. Allow to cool on wire racks.

Cooled loaves can be frozen.
