Bread Machine Saffron Bread

I remember a bread my Grandma used to make when I was a kid. It was called saffron bread – it was yellow and had raisins. My Dad and I really liked it – toasted with butter and honey. I asked my Mom and my Aunt if they had the recipe or knew how to make this bread but they did not. Finally I found a book of historic recipes from England and I was able to develop this bread machine version – it sure gives me a taste of home!
