1 1/8 C milk
3 C bread flour
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tsp active dry yeast
The first step is to place all ingredients for this raisin cinnamon bread in the pan for your bread maker in order listed. Select the dough setting. This should take about 1 hour and 40 minutes. After the dough cycle ends, remove the dough, punch down (remove the air from the dough on a floured surface) and put in your lightly greased loaf pan. Let rise until bread rises 1″ above the level of the pan.
Bake at 350F for 25-27 minutes. This dough is more dense than the white bread recipe on the previous post, so takes a little longer to cook all the way through. (It will be doughy if you don’t give it enough time.)
P.S. If you don’t have a bread maker, combine all of the ingredients in a mixer bowl with a dough hook and mix for about 5 minutes or until the dough is no longer sticky. Let rest for 10 minutes and knead again for another 5 minutes with the dough hook. Remove the hook and let rise in the bowl covered for about an hour or until doubled in size. Punch down the dough and place in a loaf pan. Follow the directions above.
Your raisin cinnamon bread will be wonderful toasted with a little butter or peanut butter. Enjoy!
