DIRECTIONS

  • Place raisins in big mixing bowl. Sprinkle baking soda over raisins. Boil water, and pour water over baking soda. Stir if needed until baking soda is dissolved.
  • Let sit overnight, or 6 to 8 hours.
  • Then add flour, sugar, salt, oil, and stir.
  • Bake in 3 small metal coffee cans (12 - 16 oz) or 2 standard size loaf pans, well greased & floured. Pam / cooking spray works, but crisco & flour results in a better "crust" to the bread.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 - 2 hours. Baking time varies depending on how light or dark the pans are, and whether you are using clear glass or dark metal. Start checking at 1 hour. Bread is done when a skewer poked through the bread comes out clear.
