If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the raisins 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.

The flavor of this dark bread is complemented by the sweetness of the raisins and the crunch of the nuts. Feel free to use either dark or golden raisins or substitute chopped walnuts for the pecans.
