Personal Notes:
Originally a Nigella Lawson recipe I started making this bread in England and have adjusted to our tastes over the years.

NOTE: I marinate the raisins in a big batch and then save for months and use as required. Basically a bag or container of raisins. 2 1/2 c. raisins, 1 cinnamon stick, 1 vanilla bean, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Cover w/ brandy or rum 1/4-1/2 c. Marinate for a day, week, month or longer.
You can use plain raisins these just give it a bit of extra special goodness.

I like to double the bread recipe and freeze the loaves. 2 large or 4 small loaves.
