Reviews for Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread
"I agree with one of the other reviewers. It was just ok, nothing special. It was missing the wow factor. It was quite easy to make but if I make again, I might try brown sugar and more raisins with a pinch of nutmeg to give it a less of a refined sugar taste."
"We love quick breads at our house and also anything spicy. So when I saw this recipe, I couldn't resist trying it and it is very, very good. I will make it again.Nancy FoustField Editor PA"
"Very easy to make. I made a lemon glaze with lemon zest poured over it. It was delicious! My family loved it! A Henry Cleveland Ohio."
"Made this bread for my Family, it was a hit especially with hubby-will definitely be making it again, great recipe!!!!"
"This bread was o.k. I omitted the raisins. I felt it was missing a wow factor. It wasn't bad just o.k. Maybe some sour cream added to the wet ingredients would help."
"Cut the ingredients in half except for the cinnamon and sugar that you add to the middle and top. Only wanted one loaf. It was great."
"This was good but I added an extra half cup of golden rasins and the zest of one orange.it was amazing"
"I had some raisins to use and found this recipe. It smelled so good when it was baking we didn't let it cool before we cut a piece. Delicious! One loaf went in the freezer but I'm not sure it will be there long!"
"Great recipe! First time I made it it was little dry. I changed the recipe the 2nd time by using 3 eggs, 2 1/2 cups of buttermilk and 1 cup of oil. For a good cinnamon taste, I add the 1 tsp of cinnamon into the batter. It turned out fluffy and moist after it's baked. My husband loved it!!"
"I've made this 3 or 4 times now. The first time I made it, I included the raisins. But since then, I've just left them out. It's almost as good as cinnamon rolls! My family loves this recipe. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea on a brisk fall or winter day."
"Yummy! Definitely double the raisins and use cinnamon liberally!~ Theresa"
"This is a delightful bread! It is so good that I made it for a friend on her birthday. I took the advice of other reviewers and added an entire cup of raisins and also added a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon to batter. I baked my breads in round 9" cake pans. The bake time was approximately 35 minutes. I just swirled the cinn/sugar mix on top of batter instead of half the batter and repeating. Its so simple!!!"
"Delicious bread. I did add more raisins and some cinnamon as suggested. Wonderful!!"
"Made this gluten-free and it was the best thing EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1"
"Very good and not to sweet.As I love raisins and cinnamon I doubled the amount of both."
"Next time I would add cinammon in the batter too. A good simple quick bread . The reviews would not let me change from a 5 star - I give it about a 3.5 - 4. Will make it again."
"This was absolutely amazing ! The first loaf was gone the first day, my son and husband devoured it. I brought the 2nd one to work where it also got rave reviews."
"Delicious. Wanted a quick recipe to throw together and be ready to eat warm - this was perfect! Didn't have buttermilk, so I added lemon juice to skim milk (1 Tbsp lemon per cup of milk) and waited 10 minutes before adding. I also used 1 cup of whole wheat flour in place of 1 cup of all purpose flous - a little bit of healthiness added. Mine was done in 45 minutes, so watch the time so it doesn't burn."
"Can't get the link to come up either."
"I can't access the link to the recipe....?"
"This is just a deliciousmorning treat! It is cake-like, as banana bread is. I'm making my second batch in 2 days for my grandkids to devourthis holiday weekend.I'm going to add some apple to it for an evenly more wonderful fragrance in my house.DRyan,LongBeach,In."
"This bread was ok but it wasn't really anything like I was expecting. It didn't have a traditional raisin bread taste. It just tasted like quick bread with raisins in it. It was ok but I didn't really enjoy it."
"This was a nice bread...I added more raisins and cinnamon. It is a semi-sweet bread, just in case you are expecting a very sweet bread."
"I did not find this bread tasty at all. It was very dry. Not a keeper recipe."
"I only had one 8x4 loaf pan so made one large loaf and 4 minis. Baked the minis for 30 min. Next time I am going to make muffins. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the batter, plus a 1/2 cup of chopped, toasted pecans.Thanks for sharing!"
"Good bread, but not much cinnamon flavor."
"Awesome recipe. Thanks TOH."

"it sounds good, and easy."
