Cinnamon Raisin Bread

 I have been baking for Christmas and wanted bread or something easy to grab for breakfast. I had originally thought I would make Challah bread either in a round pan or the braided version.

 As I was searching for that recipe I found the recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Bread. It smelled so good and I wanted to cut into it but I haven't. Instead I froze it so break out next week. My husband mentioned icing for the bread so I may do that too.  Either way this bread will definitely be good with apple or peach honey.

Ingredients to make Cinnamon Raisin Bread:

  • 2 eggs at room temperature and enough warm water to equal 1 cup
  • 2 ½ tsp yeast
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 3 to 3 ½ cups bread flour
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup nuts; optional

Instructions to make Cinnamon Raisin Bread:

    1. I use a bread maker to mix; as it is mixing, you can see if the 3 cups of flour is enough or if you need to add a tad more. Let the bread rise, it will be double the size.
    2. Spray one loaf pan with a vegetable spray, and let the bread rise again.
    3. In a preheated oven, bake the cinnamon raisin bread at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes.

Technically it is not even winter, however, the weather has been so cold, trying a new bread recipe and heating the oven sounds good. Keeping out of it while hot will be the toughest part.

I love watching The Chew, they have such good recipes. The whole Chew crew is fun to watch while they show the world how to make fantastic recipes.
