I often would like to prepare a mix of my own so when in a hurry I can 
have everything ready to make bread in my brdadmaker.  I have bought the 
mixes (prepackaged in different varieties ) and have wondered how they 
avoid using liquids or oils.  Usually the package instruction just say 
add water (1 cup).  How do they substitute for oils, butter etc?  

A quick second question.  Since I have gotten my breadmachine in January 
I have make a different loaf everyday.  I cannot make any of the breads 
with raisins---loaf too small.  I have tried 3 boxed mixes and three 
recipes from scratch following the cookbooks to the letter.  How can I 
get a decent sized loaf.   I have a 2 lb Toastmaster #1195 and have had 
no problems other than raisins.  I have added them at the cycle bell and 
even tried at the beginning.
