Hobo Bread has been around for years.  It is an old fashioned recipes that dates back as far as the pioneers.  There are hundreds of different versions of hobo bread around.  A lot of recipes for this bread call for soaking the raisins overnight with the soda and making this bread in coffee cans.  I don’t have time for all that!  This is my recipe that works great for me and my family loves it.  Slather this bread with some butter while it’s warm, serve with coffee, tea or milk for a delicious treat anytime.  You can add spices, nuts, fruits or whatever you like to this bread.  Very few recipes for hobo bread contain eggs and I don’t put them in this one.  The bread holds together fine without the eggs.  You can reheat it and this bread keeps well in a cool spot or refrigerated.  I have not tried doubling the recipe but feel you could if you wanted to make an extra loaf for a friend.
