Ingredients
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Warm water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (At About 110° F)
  Active dry yeast 1⁄4 Ounce (1 Package)
  Maple syrup/Maple-flavored syrup 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Molasses 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (Dark Or Light)
  Salad oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  All purpose flour 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Whole wheat flour 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Raisins 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg white 1 , with 1 teaspoon water
Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in the warm water.
Stir in yeast and let stand for 5 minutes.
Blend in maple syrup, molasses, oil, and salt.
Beat in all-purpose flour, 1 cup at a time, then beat until dough pulls away from bowl in stretchy strands (about 10 to 15 minutes at medium speed if using electric mixer).
With a heavy-duty mixer or wooden spoon, gradually beat in 3 cups of the whole wheat flour.
Turn dough out on a floured board and knead until smooth and elastic (10 to 15 minutes), adding more whole wheat flour as needed to prevent sticking.
Gradually knead in raisins during the last 5 minutes of kneading time.
Turn dough over in a greased bowl; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 2 hours).
Punch dough down and turn onto a lightly floured board.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into a smooth ball and place in a greased 8-inch pie pan.
Lightly brush tops with salad oil; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (45 minutes to 1 hour).
Brush egg white mixture over loaves.
Bake in a 375° oven for 30 minutes or until loaves are dark golden and sound hollow when tapped.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto racks to cool completely.
