Lori Dinsmore Posted September 8, 2010 Report Share Posted September 8, 2010 Poor Man's Bread In a saucepan, boil for 5 minutes: 2 cups water 2 cups sugar 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp allspice 1 cup butter or margarine 2 cups raisins (I use a mix of yellow and regular ones) 1tsp cinnamon 1tsp cloves 1 Tbsp cocoa (if darker bread is desired) cool mixture to lukewarm. Add: 4 cups flour 1 cup walnuts (optional) 1 tsp baking soda Mix well. Pour into two loaf pans, sprayed with Pam and bake at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean, approximately 1 hour. This bread can be served hot with cream poured on top (tastes like bread pudding) or sliced thin and buttered. added advantage...makes your house smell yummy!
