Directions Edit

  1. Combine the water, honey, and yeast in a large bowl.
  2. Let sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
  3. Add the flour 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. When the dough becomes to stiff to mix, turn it out onto a floured board and knead for 5 to 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  5. Put it in a very lightly oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  6. Beat in all the remaining ingredients except the raisins.
  7. Remove the risen dough from the bowl and knead about ten times on a clean board.
  8. Roll out into a large rectangle about 15" x 14".
  9. Spread with filling to ½" of the edge.
  10. Sprinkle raisins evenly over the filling.
  11. Roll the rectangle into a log, starting at the 15-in side, pinch the edges to seal, and slice into 1" thick rounds.
  12. Place on a nonstick baking sheet, cover, and allow to rise for about 20 minutes, or until light.
  13. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown on top.
