Recipe Tips

- 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.

The mini loaves turned out great. I used the exact amounts of ingredients and got 4 mini loaves (12 x 5cm). They were moist and soft, not dense. And the aroma was incredibly good. I'll sure bake these loaves again. The mini sizes are nice too because you can easily share one loaf or two. Thanks Land O'Lakes for this recipe. By the way, I used only 65ml rum because I felt that 1/3 cup was too much. And the loaves were still moist enough.
