Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour 50 minutes



  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.

  2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk until warm. Remove from heat and stir in the melted butter.

  3. Pour the warm water into a small bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it. Let it sit for 5 minutes until frothy.

  4. Add the milk mixture, yeast mixture, and egg to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.

  5. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky.

  6. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

  7. Punch down the dough and knead in the raisins.

  8. Shape the dough into a loaf and place it in a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan.

  9. Cover the pan with a towel and let it rise for another 30 minutes.

  10. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the bread for about 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

  11. Remove from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
