Baked brown California Raisin bread

A healthy and delicious alternative to fruit cake that also makes for an ideal homemade festive gift.

Easy and fuss-free, California Raisins are ready to use straight out of the box. Little surprise, they are the go-to ingredients for most home cooks and chefs. While they're great on their own to be nibbled on as healthy snacks, there's so much more you can do with them without needing to exert much effort. Dried in the warm California sunshine, the raisins are naturally sweet and do not contain any added sugar, making them ideal for inclusion into your sweet (but healthy) baked treats. 

Dr Klaus Tenbergen, certified master baker and executive pastry chef, has shared his simple California Raisin bread recipe with us. He's the current Dean of Technical Education and Economic Development at Columbia College in Sonora, California, so you know the recipe is bound to be delicious.
