Hobo Raisin Bread is easy. Extreeeemely easy! It’s one of those recipes that’s been passed around forever by all the mothers and aunts because ‘you just had to bake this bread’.
There has never been any dairy involved. There are different versions as I did my research but none had eggs or butter. It bakes perfectly the way it is.
Humble, old timey and it’s just too delicious and easy to pass up.
The first five ingredients are 2 cups each which makes this quick bread fun to make too. Lots of raisins and it also toasts up perfectly.
This modernized recipe is no exception. Updated with coconut sugar all of the ingredients go into one bowl, mixed and then poured into a loaf pan to bake. That’s all you do!
It’s a dark sweet bread that is actually very cake like. Very moist and it works equally well as breakfast or dessert. After you give Hobo Raisin Bread a try I think you’ll be passing around the recipe too.
