Raisin Bread

I love fresh made bread. You can make all sorts of great bread but a recipe I particularly like is a good raisin bread. I could eat a whole loaf. Anyway here is a great raisin bread recipe that you can make it easily... I must thanks to Priya for telling me how to bake bread.. First time i baked bread and thank god it came out very well..:)

1tbsp active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup soft butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup scalded milk
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten

Dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine raisins, butter, sugar, salt, and hot milk, stir to dissolve the sugar. Let mixture cool to lukewarm. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the flour, beat well. 
Add yeast mixture and the beaten eggs, mix to blend well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft but stiff dough. 
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly buttered bowl, turning once to grease the surface. 
Cover with a clean dish cloth, let stand in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. 
Punch dough down and divide into 2 portions. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Shape into a round. and place it in a baking tray. Cover and let rise again for about 45 to 60 minutes, until almost double. apply some butter on the dough. 
Bake at 175 degree for 25 minutes in a pre heated oven, placing foil over loaves the last 10 minutes, if loaves are getting too brown. Remove loaves from pans and let cool on racks.
