Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread (My Lightened Version)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is your basic cinnamon raisin bread that I have made more diabetic acceptable. It originally ask for the tops to be brushed with more melted butter, I have omitted that but you certainly may do so if you wish. My DH loves it made as french toast.

GREAT TASTING BREAD, for sure! We really like the combo of cinnamon & raisins (I used a very generous measure of the latter), & this bread, with all the lightened ingredients, it's a real winner ~ Definitely a keeper of a recipe, & one that I'll have to share with my daughter who lives in Tennessee! Thanks for sharing this one! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 16]
