Sweet Raisin Bread

On Christmas morn, Kenny and I like to have something light to tide us over, sometimes it’s some sweet rolls and sometimes it’s just some toast with our coffee. This is a wonderful way to start off the morning, make it the day before, slice it up and pop it in the toaster.  I have not tried this recipe yet, but love raisin bread and it’s even good to make French toast for a change of pace served up with lots of butter, syrup and extra raisins on top!
