Raisin Sourdough Bread

Here's a recipe that reminds me of home when my mom would toast raisin bread for us for breakfast. Enjoy!

1 cup FED sourdough starter
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons softened butter
1 cup wheat flour
3 cups flour
1/2 cup rye flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 cup raisins, chopped

In large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until combined. Knead to form a smooth dough, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer dough to a greased bowl and cover. Allow to rise until doubled, about 60-90 minutes. Set dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently form it into a 12" log. Place on parchment paper and cover, allowing it to rise for 60 minutes until puffy. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slash the top several times. Bake for 40-45 minutes on a pizza stone, until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf.
