Raisin Quick Bread: Recipes from Long Ago


Usually when I think of a raisin bread, I think of a yeast bread that takes a few hours to knead, rise, form, rise and bake. This recipe, found in a vintage Sun-Maid raisin ad, circa 1940, is a quick bread that stirs together in about ten minutes or less. It does take 90 minutes to bake, but that is time that I can be doing other things. You will notice right off that there is no fat in this. It makes a dense, sweet dessert bread. Very unusual, but very delicious; especially with a slab of butter spread on top. Add nuts if you want (about 1/2 cup); pecans or walnuts would be great.
