Currant or Raisin Oatmeal Bread

    Don’t have a bread machine! But faked my way through it. Used the exact recipe save for about 1/2 cup of bread flour less–dough didn’t want to take more than that. Did the usual two rises and baked in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. I highly recommend this loaf. It’s DELICIOUS! Moist, chewy and dense. I used a combination of raisins and dried tart montmorency cherries. Will be making this regularly!
