    Default Irish Freckle Bread Recipe

    1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
    8 tablespoons sugar, divided
    1 cup warm water (110 to 115)
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup warm mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3-1/4 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup raisins

    In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm water. Add the butter, eggs, potatoes, salt, remaining sugar and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in raisins and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
    Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
    Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into eight portions. Shape each into a ball. Place dough balls in a greased 10-in. springform pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
    Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove sides of pan. Place on a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf, 12 servings.
