I did whole wheat raisin bread with currants instead of raisins. I’m surprised at how different it is from the white flour raisin breads I did when whole wheat flour was unavailable. I had forgotten how harsh the whole wheat bread could taste, and the difference between cooking with raisins and currants. I should have added additional sugar to the bread, I had assumed that the currants would add more sweetness but they didn’t. Possibly the raisins being bigger allowed more sugar to spread into the dough.
I cooked it in a slow cooker on high for about 3 1/2 hours to 190 degrees. One of the nice thing about a whole wheat bread is that its always a good color. the white flour bread was unpleasantly pale when I cooked it in a slow cooker.
