Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Josephine got this recipe from her very good friend Edith Mallgrave. She says in her notes that the original recipe called for 3 cups of flour but she thought it was "too heavy". She also recommends that if you want to make 2 loaves, you should make each recipe in its own bowl. She says that "Edith doesn't advise to double recipe". PS. She also adds 1/2 cup or more raisins for each loaf if desired.
