This bread is super quick to put together even though it has a tad longer ingredient list than usual. Within a few hours you will have a lovely loaf to enjoy. This one is great toasted but also would be fantastic as a basis for your next french toast breakfast.
If you don't have wheat bran handy simply swap it out with oat bran. I tend to have oat bran on standby all the time as it is one of my favorite hot cereals. I used dark raisins in this recipe but you could also use golden raisins or any other small dried fruit and exchange it in the recipe at a 1:1 ratio.
So let's get BAKING!
I use this brand of cereal.
