Anyway, two weeks ago, while I was on my "detox" I had the BIGGEST cravings for raisin bread. The weird part is I couldn't remember the last time I had had it. Where was that craving coming from?
So once my "detox" was over, what do you think I made?
|Whole wheat raisin bread|
While it satisfied my craving, it could have used more than 1 cup of raisins. The raisins soaked in water an hour before being added into the bread dough, but perhaps a longer soaking time would have made them better.
