This was great! I make cinnamon buns or raisin bread for our Sunday morning breakfasts and this combined the two. My kids love it. I did cut back on the cinnamon though - more like 3 teaspoons instead of 3 tablespoons. I also didn't do the egg white and sugar thing at the end - enough sugar in the filling for us anyway. Thank you! This bread will become part of our family breakfasts!

Good bread and I will be making again. The kids really liked it. I had gaps from the rolling, however. Perhaps I didn't roll it tight enough. Next time I'll roll tighter and see if that helps. I also put into 2 loaf pans, and gave one away. Looks nice with the sugary crust.

THE BEST!! I put it on the dough setting then pull it roll it thin. i melt the butter and add the cinnamon and sugar. Then smear it an the dough, roll it up and slice it about 1 inch thick. place them on a small cookie sheet, i put extra butter, cin & sugar on the top, let them double and bake! we make these about once a month.

I'm not sure if I should say THANK YOU or not. I made this for my kids (4,3 and 1) and ever since then I hear "swirly toast" every time I ask them what they want for breakfast. Great recipe!

I have made this several times now and we love it. It makes great gifts for people, too, since it looks so pretty. The only change I make is to put the raisins on when I put the butter and cinnamon/sugar and then roll the loaf. Because my machine does not beep on the dough cycle, I don't know when to add the raisins. Putting the raisins with the filling is just as good I think. Very yummy and well worth the wait!

This is a delicious, beautiful loaf with a great texture that was a big hit. My few tweaks ... I added a couple of tablespoons of dry mashed potato flakes to give it a bit richer flavor and as a preservative, and I used all-purpose flour and added a tablespoon of gluten powder. A definite keeper and highly recommended.

WOW! I made this bread exactly as directed except for the room temp ingredients (my bread maker has a preheat feature). Have to admit I was a little concerned about the egg white on the dough before the butter and cinnamon sugar mixture, as that seemed a tad strange and I wondered if it was typo. No it wasn't! DH and I could hardly wait for this to cool down enough to slice big slices and gobble them down as fast as we could. The bread is just the perfect blend of tender dough, sweetness and cinnamon. The absolute best cinnamon bread recipe I've ever tried and the best cinnamon bread I've ever eaten hands down. This will be our standard. Thanks for sharing!

Disappointing. Although I carefully measured the liquid and softened the butter, the dough came out too stiff for the bread machine. I ended up throwing it out and starting over with a different recipe.

This was the first time I had used the dough cycle and I was delighted with the results!! Nice soft texture and great flavor. I found that I didn't need as much melted butter & cinnamon as called for. I use Koranji cinnamon and it is very dtrong. This is a KEEPER!!<br/>UPDATE:Had separation with this today. See my photo. I had rolled the dough very tightly trying to avoid this. I also raised the dough a second time before shaping. Any ideas to keep the loaf tight ?

Made this bread last night for my son and his friend. Let's just say that after thirty minutes licking their chops in anticipation (from the delectable smell that wafted from the kitchen), they spent the next hour trying to out-compliment me. Their compliments spanned a myriad of topics, like astronomy "Mommy's raisin bread is so good, aliens from another planet would come down to eat it!" to international relations "If everyone on the planet ate your raisin bread, there would be peace on earth!" I hope this answers the question of how good it was. And, even though I am on a carb-restricted diet, I cheated for a good cause (who doesn't want peace on earth?) I had to agree... It was amazingly delicious! :-)
