Combine milk, shortening and molasses in mixing bowl and let cool till lukewarm. Add yeast and then allow to stand for about 5 minutes. Then add raisins. Add flour, a little each time, and beating after each addition, until you have a stiff dough. It must be stiff enough to knead on a lightly floured board. Knead till smooth and elastic. Cover with a warm damp cloth and let sit in warm place until double in bulk. Punch down, and let rise to double in bulk again. Form into loaves with hands and place into well-greased pans. Cover and let the dough rise once more till double in bulk. Bake in a hot oven at about 400-425 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until done.
