I've been buying Francisco Brand "Sourdough Round" for 30 years here in L.A. It makes great toast. (And sandwiches) You just have to be careful, it will overtoast very suddenly, sort of like pine nuts.

Nothing better than Yeasty home made raisin bread. let it sit for a day or two before toasting:

HOME MADE RAISIN BREAD
Ingredients:
·         1 package active dry yeast
·         1/4 cup warm water 110 Degrees
·         1 cup raisins
·         1/4 cup soft butter
·         1/4 cup sugar
·         1 1/2 teaspoons salt
·         1/2 cup scalded milk
·         3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
·         2 eggs, beaten
Preparation:
Dissolve yeast in warm water.
In a large bowl, combine raisins, butter, sugar, salt, and hot milk; stir to dissolve the sugar.
Let mixture cool to lukewarm.
Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the flour; beat well.
Add yeast mixture and the beaten eggs; mix to blend well.
Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft but stiff dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic.
Place dough in a lightly buttered bowl, turning once to grease the surface.
Cover with a clean dish cloth; let stand in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
Punch dough down and divide into 2 portions.
Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Shape into 2 loaves; place in 2 greased 8x4x3-inch loaf pans.
Cover and let rise again for about 45 to 60 minutes, until almost double.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, placing foil over loaves the last 10 minutes, if loaves are getting too brown.
Remove loaves from pans and let cool on racks.

After I had too much to drink the other night, my friends said I was, toasted.
So, am I toast now?
