Potato Bread (Kartoflany Chleb)

“I received this through a recipe swap in Home Cooking magazine by a very nice gentleman named Billie A Wesolowski. I'm very thankful to him for such a great recipe. This makes a very delicious loaf of bread. A family favorite since 1999. I've never tried it with the raisins though.”
