Let’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!
So whether you are baking Cinnamon Raisin Bread for an every day breakfast or plan on hosting a brunch this Mother’s day. You may just want to include baking some fresh homemade Cinnamon Raisin bread and adding this to the spread!
