Cinnamon and Raisin Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by PetsRus

This recipe is from the recipe leaflet that came with my bread machine. I increased the cinnamon by 1 teaspoon, the raisins by 1 tablespoon and added the orange zest to give it more flavor, but feel free to adjust it to your own taste (I just like the flavor of cinnamon) This recipe uses fast acting yeast because it is made using the rapid cycle. Leftover slices are great for making French toast. Ignore the cooking time I have given, it can be different with your machine setting.

one word...PERFECT! this was just so delicious! And so easy to make. My breadmaker did all the hard work (kneading) and I finished it off in the oven at 350F for 30 minutes. it come out nice and golden...and crispy on the outside. we had a great afternoon tea....the whole loaf was gone in no time. Five star plus!

  1. Put everything in your bread bucket in the order given, except for the raisins.
  2. Place the bucket in the machine.
  3. Bake on the fruit/nut rapid setting.
  4. Add the raisins at the beep.
  5. This makes a 1-½ lb loaf, my leaflet says not to try to make this a 2 lb loaf, it will be too big and escape from the bread maker.
