Unplug the bread machine and remove the bread pan from the bread machine. This prevents any ingredients added to the bread pan from accidently spilling into the bread machine.
Pour the milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients (except the golden raisins). Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid or salt (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together). FYI - Do not place the salt where you plan to add the yeast.
Place the bread pan back into the bread machine and plug in the bread machine.
Enter the correct settings into the bread machine (i.e. 1.5 or 2 pound, light color and basic) and press the start button.
After the bread machine has finished its FIRST kneading cycle (and before it has started the second kneading cycle), add the golden raisins.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine.
Lift the bread pan out of the bread machine. Wear oven mitts as the bread pan will be very hot!
Remove the bread from the bread pan and place the bread on a cooling rack. Wear oven mitts.
After removing the bread, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
