Cinnamon Raisin Bread

January 24th, 2009 by katie

You knew once I posted my first bread post that it would only be a matter of time until cinnamon raisin bread came up.  This time I used Lisa’s recipe for Bread for a Week.  It was delicious and since it makes 4 loaves I made two sandwich loaves and two cinnamon bread loaves.  You’ll notice there are no raisins apparent.  I discovered I was out as I was rolling the bread out to sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  However, if I had added raisins I would have chopped them and tossed them in the cinnamon sugar before I sprinkled it over the dough.

The cinnamon sugar at our house is actually a blend and always good to have on hand (also seen here).  I used about 1/3 cup but I would use a lot more next time.  Just roll out your favorite bread dough, brush with a beaten egg, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and raisins if desired.

Cinnamon Sugar

makes about 3 cups
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cups cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  1. Combine, store in an air tight container.  Use on toast, coffee, etc…

    What a great idea! I’m going to have to try that next time I make this. I just gave one of my frozen loaves to my best friend over the weekend and she called me early Saturday morning to tell me how she was sitting eating it with jam. Made me happy. Thanks for the great idea!

    I just found your blog today and have been enjoying your posts and your recipes.
    I blog with my sister and our “about us” page has a dictionary definition too. Great minds, I guess.
