  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon of butter



  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees, and with a 1/2 of a tablespoon of butter grease an 8 1/2″ loaf pan.
  2. Then in a medium size bowl mix your flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and as you are mixing this put raisin in gently coating them in the dry mix.
  3. Then in a separate bowl combine your eggs, milk, and butter and mix, and then add to the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon by hand till moist, it will be thick and sticky.
  4. Then place the mixture in the greased pan and try to evenly flatten batter as best as you can, it will rise in the middle as it bakes for 1 hour.
