Preparation / Directions:
*May use egg substitute or egg whites.
**Nuts may be omitted. I have substituted the nuts with 1/2 cup mashed bananas for an entirely different flavor, if you do this, mix banana with the wet ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook raisins in the water until all water is absorbed, approximately 30 minutes. Mix all wet ingredients in one bowl and all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add nuts to the flour mixture then add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture. Fold in the raisins. Bake in loaf or bundt pan for 35 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out dry. It is really more like a nut bread.
