hello fall!

pumpkins are in the stores, sunflowers are blooming on the roadside, i changed my scentsy to sticky cinnamon bun, and i decided to bake up some raisin bread too!

 using a "secret" ingredient:

have you ever seen these?  they come in watermelon flavor too, my kids love them!  they were a hit at preschool snack time too.  they taste like sour patch candy!  i wanted to try baking with them.   they are a great substitute to raisins ori want to try using them in muffins too.   maybe with some craisins? 

anyways, here's the recipe.  it's really more of a cake than a bread.  let me know if you try them out, or if you have a go to recipe for quick bread.

Orange Raisin Bread, makes 2 loaves

1 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar (plus 1 Tbsp. to sprinkle on top)
4 eggs
2 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. flour
4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 boxes raisels, or 2 c. raisins (or other dried frgh;hhg;gh hg;gh;h;h;h;h;h ;nhn OJpoin
mix butter, sugar, and add eggs one at a time until well blended.  mix in milk and vanilla.
in a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.  stir in raisins.  add dry ingredients to mixer bowl and stir just to combine.  pour into two greased loaf pans, sprinkle with brown sugar, and bake at 350* for about 40-45 minutes.  It may take longer, depending on your oven.

one note about the raisels -  they are super sticky, so they clump together.  i worked them apart with my fingers when i tossed them with the flour.  that way they are evenly distributed through the batter. 

how do you celebrate fall?
