Ingredients

  • 5 1/2-6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 pkgs. or cakes yeast
  • 1 3/4 cups warm milk
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. margarine
  • 2 cups raisins
  • cooking oil

Directions

Spoon or pour flour into dry measuring cup. Level off and pour measured flour onto wax paper. Measure warm water into large warm bowl. Sprinkle or crumble in yeast; stir until dissolved.

Add warm milk, sugar, salt and margarine. Stir in 2 cups flour. Beat with rotary beater until smooth (about 150 strokes). Stir in raisins. Add enough additional flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap, then a towel. Let rest on board 20 minutes.

Punch down, divide dough in half. With a rolling pin, roll each portion into an 8x12 rectangle. Beginning with upper 8 inch edge, roll dough towards you. Seal with thumbs or heel of hand after each complete turn. Seal final seam and edges well. Place in 2 greased 8x4 loaf pans. Brush with oil. Cover pans loosely with oiled wax paper, then top with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2-24 hours.

When ready to bake, remove loaves from refrigerator. Using a greased toothpick or metal skewer, puncture any surface bubbles which may have formed on the dough. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, or until done. Brush tops with melted margarine, if desired. Makes 2 loaves.

I am having a problem making raisin bread in my bread machine. It's an old Breadmaster machine and I have no instruction book. If I add the raisins at the beginning of the cycle they just disappear into the dough. When I wait until I hear the first "beeps" the raisins end up stuck to the bottom of the loaf. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thanks for any advice.

What's wrong with them disappearing into the dough? I usually add mine with the rest of the stuff because I get busy and forget to listen for the add beep and wind up with raisinless raisin bread. When I slice the bread they're there.

I know what you mean; they disappear because they've been chopped up and incorporated during the kneading.

The last set of beeps is supposed to be when you add them--at least it is on my (Welbilt) machine. Your dough recipe may need a bit more liquid to make the dough soft enough for the raisins to be folded into it (as opposed to sticking to the bottom). I would try this first. You want the dough to be soft, but not sticky. Poke it while it is kneading, once all the ingredients are combined and it looks like dough. If it feels too firm, add liquid, let it knead and poke again. You can keep repeating this, until you get the dough nice and soft.

If that doesn't work, I think I would be inclined to wait until the dough finishes kneading, then dump the dough out onto a clean, flour-dusted countertop, and knead the raisins in by hand. I would not take more than a minute or two. Then you could toss it back in the machine for rising and baking. (Or you could, at that point, just put it in a loaf pan and bake it in the oven.)

Just keep experimenting until you find what works. (I expect your family doesn't mind eating the mistakes!)

Once you know how much extra liquid you need, you will not have to "babysit" the dough.

Try coating the raisins with flour before you put them in the dough. That's what is usually suggested when adding raisins to other breads and things, so they don't sink. Throw some flour in a bowl with the raisins and stir to coat. Get rid of all the excess flour (use a strainer or something). If you don't add too much flour with the raisins, it shouldn't effect the bread.

Coat your raisins with some extra flour before adding them to your bread dough. This may make then less likely to go to the bottom or stay top.

Well you could add double the amount then normal and maybe when they get chopped up within the dough there would be more spreaded around OR you could like one said add them by removing the dough and kneading it into the dough, if there was a pause button lol :) mine there arenot.. then you might as well let it rise and stick it in the oven you know in a bread pan! So I would maybe try double the amount if nothing else :) and maybe you would have disappeared raisans but more of them lol :) Just a thought...

You can roll them in flour towards the end and this should help them from dropping to the bottom.

I always add extra raisins about half the amount stated but I start adding them bit by bit. I put in about half after the first raising cycle when the machine starts knocking the dough down and mixing and then the rest when the beep comes on. This usually works for me.

I don't always cook my bread inside the machine because I prefer making the bread in loaf tins for a better shape so I do this in the stove and also I can make two smaller loaves and freeze one. So if I needed to add more raisins I could do so when shaping the bread.

Go to http://safemanuals.com/ They have, hundreds, maybe even thousands, of instruction books and manual for lots of different products. They are listed by brand name. Put in your model number and you can download what you need for free. Good luck.

Hi When you are adding raisins or blueberres to a bread or muffin mix; lightly flour them before putting them into the batter. They will stay singular in the batter. My grandmother taught me this trick years ago. Enjoy

I am looking for a copycat recipe for Sunkist Raisin bread preferably one that has raisin concentrate in it. I would also like information on how to find and/or make raisin concentrate. Thank you.

To my knowledge raisin concentrate is just taking a couple handfulls of raisins and boiling them in minimum water for a few minutes.
I do this to the raisins I use in my raisin pie recipe.
Do like 1C raisins to 1/2 C water, boil 3-5 min and let stew (sit at room temp till cool to touch).
Your recipe might be very tasty if you used apple juice instead of water too.

Ok that is what I was wondering, I also thought that after you boiled them maybe you should blend the raisins and the resulting "juice/concentrate" thanks for replying.
