PRIZE WINNER IN THE RAISIN BREAD CONTEST

 

Soak 1 yeast cake in 1 1/2 cups of potatoe water, mix in enough flour to make a stiff batter; beat five minutes. Let stand over night. In the morning scald 2 cups of sweet milk, into which put 1 rounded teaspoon Cottolene, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons sugar. When milk is lukewarm mix with the yeast; add enough flour to make a stiff batter; beat about ten minutes; let rise. When sufficiently raised add 2 cups seeded or seedless raisins; mix; add more flour and knead until dough is smooth; let rise. Make into loaves and bake 1 hour. When baked, wet top of loaves with sugar and hot water to prevent the crust becoming too hard.
