Wheat Flavored, Sweet Flavored, and Nutty, the ingredients in this bread combine in a balanced and flavorful way. Peanut butter is a happy addition between a couple of slices, and the flavors are even more intensified when the bread is toasted. Pour warm water over the golden raisins and let them sit for up to 30 minutes to soften. Drain the raisins well before the mix. This step can be done just before mixing, or a day ahead. The pecans can be roasted prior to mixing, but keep the roasting light—overroasting makes them bitter.
