Recipe needed for a Polish bread
My paternal grandmother grew up in what is now southern Poland and at the time, governed by the Austro-Hungarian Empire. On Saturdays, our large family would gather at her house where we would devour loaves of her raisin bread. The loaves were large, at least 2 lbs or more, with a thick, dark caramelized crust and a golden yellow crumb with raisins. This was a substantial bread and she often served it with home made butter.
As far as I know, no one in the family is making this bread or at least talking about making it so the availability of recipe is questionable. I don't have the Polish name for the bread yet. However, I'll be retiring in a couple of weeks so I'll have the time to take a shot at baking it soon. Perhaps someone in the Chicago, IL or Springfield, MA area has an idea of what I'm looking for.
