Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Cinnamon Raisin Bread via KatiesCucina.com #BrunchWeek #Bread #RecipeLet’s talk about bread today. To be exact, homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Ever since I took the plunge in working with yeast earlier this year I’ve been expanding my bread making horizons. We love to eat Cinnamon Raisin Bread in our home and I knew that two homemade loaves were really going to hit the spot. Growing up as a kid I loved to eat Cinnamon Raisin Bread toasted smeared with butter and sprinkled with additional sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. If we didn’t have Cinnamon Raisin Bread on hand my mom would just toast white bread for me. Seriously, when I wasn’t eating soup for breakfast (yes, that’s a true story) I was eating cinnamon sugar toast or for a real delicacy Cinnamon Raisin Bread with butter and cinnamon-sugar.

I was shocked at how easy this recipe was. This was my first full loaf bread baked in 8×8 bread loaf pans. I was a bit nervous as I always am when baking bread. After a few hours of rising and then baking I knew that my bread was a success! After it cooled I sliced a thick piece of the Cinnamon Raisin Bread to give it a taste test. It was amazing. More than I could have ever dreamed of. Full of cinnamon and plump raisins. Although, the next time I think I’ll make it a little sweeter. But other than that… its amazing!

    I always buy the Ezekial brand Cinnamon Raisin bread and toast it and add peanut butter. I guess I’ll have to start making it now!!

    Love homemade raisin bread! It is so comforting! Yours looks great! I would try to slice a piece warm next time – there’s nothing better!

    • Katie replied on May 6th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

      Thanks for visiting and the kind compliments! I’ll be a rebel next time and slice it warm!

    This looks perfect! I’m impressed that you got it to turn out so well on your first try. I also love cinnamon sugar toast… even better if it’s on cinnamon bread! :)

    • Katie replied on May 6th, 2013 at 9:15 pm

      Oh wow thanks Allison! I’ve learned that I have to be way patient!

    Your bread looks great! I guess you’ve overcome your fear of yeast?

    • Katie replied on May 6th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

      Yes–well sort of. I’m still very hesitant with the yeast making, but after I continue to keep baking breads and all things yeasty–I’m becoming more comfortable!

    I can almost smell those loaves! Boy, do I love some homemade bread… :)
