There's good news and bad news.
The good news is that it turned out great. The bad news is that my husband isn't overly fond of raisins (it's his mother's fault) and my 5 year old generally likes any kind of fruit separate from other food. The exceptions to this would be strawberries on pancakes and a bit of apple pie. He's become a good eater, but he hasn't fully arrived yet. So, the really bad news is that I'm bound to eat this whole loaf myself. I shall have to pull out the sweat pants soon.
Make it soon and be ready to eat it warm. Like all of the quickbreads listed here, this one slices up well while still warm. Mmmmmm.
