Old Time Bread Recipe


1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

3 cups bread flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

6 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried black pepper

1 1/4 cups whole raisins

1/4 cup chopped almonds

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a large bowl, mix water, bread flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, oregano, lemon juice, oil, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

For the bread, brown and drain 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add raisins and oil and stir until coated. Remove raisins from skillet and stir in flour and baking powder. Mix well and quickly pour into pan. Sprinkle with almonds, cinnamon and raisins.

Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, until a tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool bread on a wire rack in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Cool completely.

AWESOME! This cake was baked for me for my birthday, so I did not prepare it, but I can vouch that it tastes divine! It is so rich and moist, and the tips are beautiful and unique. It does not require frosting of any kind, and my mother-in-law made up a batch of "toffee bits" for me just for my birthday; I did not ask for them, but they are delicious and would make an excellent topping for this cake. They are also quite pricey at $4.99 for each 1/2, but they are well worth it given the quality of the ingredients. Though this recipe does not include a large amount of ingredients, it nonetheless produced an amazing amount of moist air and stayed well coated. It is sure to please.

Very tasty. Made 1/2 a recipe as it is. Half way thru cook time only. I baked at 350 and the other half of the recipe inside the loaf pan. Came out superspicy and had lots of flavor + it was the first time I had ever approved of such a recipe. Hope this helps:)
