This bread is wonderful served with a flavored butter. Creamy Apple Butter goes great with it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 8x4x3-inch loaf pan. Using electric mixer cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the remaing ingredients, except raisins and nuts. Mix well. Stir in raisins and nuts. Pour into loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes.
