This bread is a little sweeter and richer than the usual raisin bread. For best results, soak the raisins in rum overnight and measure the raisins after soaking.
2 tablespoons rum
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup water
2 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon dry milk powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon rum flavored extract
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
In a small bowl, pour rum over raisins. Let stand for 30 minutes and drain.
Place ingredients in pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Use the regular setting for a 1 pound loaf.
If your machine has a Fruit setting, add the raisins at the signal, or about 5 minutes before the kneading cycle has finished.
Makes 1 (1 pound) loaf.
