Raisin Cinnamon Bread
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 30 min.
Makes2 loaves (16 slices each)
Amazing!!! I stumbled upon this recipe, as I didn’t have any eggs, but still wanted raisin bread. I cut the ingredients in half so I could test one loaf and I wish I hadn’t! My picky husband and kids gobbled it up, and I didn’t even use the icing!
The photo looked great so I made it as a gift to my neighbors. Unfortunately the two loaves did not rise like the photo showed. I reread the instructions thinking I did something wrong but I did everything correctly. I made another batch and added 1/2 pkg more of yeast and put them into smaller loaf pans than it called for - was slightly better but still not my standard. My yeast was brand new - thinking I should have put in two full packets of yeast.
I have made 6 loaves of this in two days, and gave neighbors all except two of them. They loved it and so did my husband. I experimented using Almond milk with two loaves, for someone who cannot have dairy. It worked just fine. Notice too, there are only 2 Tablespoon of fat per loaf (1/4 cup for 2 loaves) and no egg. I did use the entire mix of sugar/cinnamon per loaf, meaning I actually doubled what I suppose was meant to be used. It was just perfect for our tasting.
The taste was great, turned out perfect. Recipe is spot on, Yields 2 large loaves, or 3 medium loaves....
My loaves are currently rising in their pans, but I can already tell this recipe is a keeper! The ingredients are spot on and easy to understand. The dough was a pleasure to work with. I make bread often, and I really like this recipe.
This is the best bread! My children who dont like raisin bread even devoured it!
I LOVE this Bread and really enjoy making it and because of this I no longer buy breakfast bread at the grocery store. I start a day or so ahead of time by soaking regular & golden raisins in Rum. I use my kitchen aid when it's time to knead the bread. This is a nice bread to share with friends & neighbors as well!!
I made this bread for my dad's birthday, and everyone loved it. This was my first time kneading dough by hand, and it still came out great. I only gave it 4/5 stars because I didn't make the icing and the bread was perfect without it. The icing would make it too sweet. One suggestion I have is to plump your raisins with hot water (or rum, whatever you like) so they'll be nice and moist in your bread.
This recipe turned out great. I proofed my yeast and followed the one reviewer's suggestion and made sure my milk was warm. I also added Walnuts to mine. YUM! The dough rose beautifully and the bread was huge hit at work. I will definitely make it again!
What a great recipe!! I followed it exactly and the bread turned out perfectly. Sooo good!
