Grease a 9" x 3" x 3" loaf pan. In a small bowl, combine the raisins, baking soda, boiling water and Jack Daniel' whiskey. Set the bowl aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the raisin mixture, egg, and oil and stir to blend. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 3-35 minutes. If you like, mix up about 2/3 cup confectioner's sugar, combined with a little cream to make a glaze. Drizzle over the warm bread. Just divine!!! Y'all enjoy!
