2 ounces Fresh yeast OR
2 tablespoons Dried yeast
3 1/2 ounces Sugar

2 pounds Strong plain flour (bread)
1 teaspoon Salt
3 1/2 ounces Margarine or Butter
1/2 cup Raisins (or to taste)

Add the remaining liquid at 98.6 F, the flour and the salt and commence kneading the mixture at speed 2. Cut dough in half and roll each half out on lightly floured surface. Sprinkle half of raisins on each rolled out half and roll up. Place each shaped loaf in pan. Allow to rise until the dough is double its original size and bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.

This is a delicious sweet bread and great toasted. I doubt I will ever buy raisin bread again. Too easy to make my own now.
