1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter
2 teaspoons milk

2 teaspoons turbinado (raw) sugar, if desired
*Substitute 2 teaspoons rum extract and enough water to equal 1/3 cup.

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 3 (5 3/4x3-inch) mini loaf pans; set aside.
Combine raisins and 1/3 cup rum in bowl. Microwave 1 minute. Set aside to cool slightly.

Spoon batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans; remove to cooling rack.
Combine all glaze ingredients except powdered sugar and turbinado sugar in bowl. Microwave 30-35 seconds until butter is melted; stir until smooth. Stir in powdered sugar until well mixed. Spread glaze over warm loaves. Top with Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil and sprinkle with turbinado sugar, if desired.
- Raw brown sugar, or turbinado, is a coarse sugar that is nice for topping baked goods. Look for it near the other sugars in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
- For easy gift giving, bake loaves in mini aluminum foil loaf pans.

I skimmed back on the rum and used 1/4 cup and they were still great. Definitely a holiday bread on a cold winter's day.
This turned out great. Definitely use rum forvraisins and glaze. 1/3 cup of rum is not to much.
