    I'm not sure about volume but I use the large bakers secret bread tin see dimensions below. I think 900g would be too big for this recipe but I've never tried it. 

    Dimensions23.7L x 13.2W x 6.7Hcm

    Submitted by dddorrisss on 23. May 2016 - 16:03.

    It may be differences in ovens. If it's cooked on the outside but not too brown them cook for a little longer. If it's cooked on the outside and will burn if you leave it any longer then you might want to try to turn your temperature down but cook it a little longer so it cooks through. Hopefully that will do the trick

    I've made this twice now, and it's awesome.  The dough is very sticky and I couldn't really roll it, but it still turned out fine once cooked.  My son eats raisin bread every morning for breakfast and I feel so much better giving him this instead of the store bought rubbish with all the 'numbers' in it. Thank you for the recipe.

    Great recipe. Made this dough into two smaller loaves this morning and used 100g sultanas and 100g dried apricots. So good! Had to exercise some self control and stop after two slices! No more shop bought for me.

    Better than store bought bread. I added an extra 50 grams of sultanas. It is the first loaf of bread I had ever made and I will definitely make again. My family loved it! 

    Thankyou dddorrisss.

    Smells great, tastes great! Dough was too sticky to shape into a ball, but I just left it wrapped in the thermomat to rise, then threw two lumps of the dough on a tray lined baking paper and baked. Easy! Thanks sharing!

    Easy and the best ever raisin bread. Moist and dense. I make it every week because my 2 year old always asks for it for breakfast. I add 140g fruit as I love lots of fruit. Can never eat bought raisin bread again

  • Delicious recipe. I made this
    Submitted by bubg on 20. May 2015 - 12:29.

    Delicious recipe. I made this with half white spelt and half plain flour and a mix of sultanas and cranberries - it was so tasty. I needed to add a little extra water because of the spelt. Thanks for sharing, this will be a regular in our house.

    And in response to an earlier question: I'm certainly not a baker, but I leave my dough to rise overnight and cook in the morning...and it works... I preheat my oven to 100 degrees, then turn it off. Prepare dough as per recipe and leave in an oiled bowl in the oven overnight. In the morning I punch it down, shape into a free form loaf on a floured pizza stone then bake. Yum!

    Submitted by dddorrisss on 15. February 2015 - 20:11.

    Hi, usually the dough can be a little sticky but not runny. You should still be able to hold it in your hand, I put a little bit of flour on the board and on my hands so that it doesn't stick when rolling. It's not a firm dough like other breads though. 

    Make sure that the total amout of water is 300g so the water from the soaking plus extra water = 300g. Hope it works out better the next time.

    This will definitely be my new go-to recipe for raisin bread!  tmrc_emoticons.)  A lot moister than others I've tried.  I added an extra 50g of fruit, and lots of spice - cinnamon, nutmeg and mixed spice.  I think using the leftover water from soaking the dried fruit is a great idea, as the flavour seemed to infuse all the bread.  Delicious!!
