“The secret to this dish is all in the preparation. It looks absolutely beautiful when you are finished and does NOT need a bread machine for those of us who don't own them. More raisins is always optional. I include the rising time in the cooking time since you are doing nothing. Also if you use self rising flour then omit the salt.”
