"The title says it all. This is so good. This is a sweet bread, great for breakfast or snack. I must warn you, it touched the top of my breadmaker. It is too good not to share. I changed another recipe and added some things. My additions were the raisins and cinnamon. It origially was suppose to make a 1 1/2 lb. loaf. I didn't think the raisons and cinnamon would have add that much, but I guess it did. You might want to adjust to make a 1 1/2lb. loaf because I will list this as a 2 lb. loaf. It is so good! It knead the heck out of the raisins so there is little bits all through the bread. Chewy, sweet and moist. I used sugar free syrup to cut down on sugar. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. Please leave feedback."

"I substituted more honey for the syrup (we didn't have any), subbed craisins for the raisins, but added a small handful of raisins in. I also added about a quarter cup of crushed pecans. It is AMAZING!! My toddler, husband, and I have already eaten almost the whole loaf and it came out only an hour ago! ...it was supposed to be our breakfast bread for the week... guess we'll make another loaf! Next time, I'm adding dried blueberries, cashews, pistachios, and almonds to make it a sort of morning energy toast! Yummy!"
"I made the bread this morning but it didn't really turn out. I followed the recipe exactly except baked on "Sweet" cycle. The bread was not done in the center, so I'll try again on the Basic cycle."
"Great recipe! I used all purpose flour and only half a cup of oatmeal and no raisins and it was still fantastic!"
"So delicious! I made it without the raisins, and I was liberal in measuring the cinnamon. When I made my cousin loved it so much that I think she'll be buying a breadmaker soon!"
"Fantastic for sure!! This made a tall dense tasty bread! We LOVED it! Added only a spoon or two of honey and used 1/4 cup of real maple syrup. Thanks! :)"
"Awesome recipe, thanks! I actually used only 3/4 cup bread flour because that's all I had left. Then I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed (I always use 1/4 cup of flax in my breads for the omega 3's). So good! I was afraid of using more than 50% whole wheat, but it turned out amazingly well, I think because this recipe is so stellar! Thank you!"
"I chose this recipe for the first loaf of bread using my new bread machine. I followed the directions exactly and have only one question...one side of the loaf has some floury spots that don't look very appealing. Do you know what I may have done wrong? Other than that small issue this bread rose perfectly, smelled great and looks very nice on top and 3 of the sides. It's still cooling so we haven't tasted it but I gave it 5 stars because I will definately make it again. Thanks for sharing this great recipe."
"Wonderful flavor! I used the dough setting on my bread machine, and baked in the oven. I'll be making this again!"
"Made this yesterday and it was the best cinnamon raisin bread I have ever had. I didn't put raisins into it but none the less it was still amazing. It was so easy to just put everything into the bread machine and let the machine do the rest and it smelled wonderful for the next 4 hours. We had it this morning for french toast and it was delicious. Thanks for posting."
"The best raisin bread I've ever had. Baked as instructed."
"I made this for a bake sale this weekend and it was wonderful! The lady that bought it split the loaf in half with her sister because it was so big -- both of them called me the next day to tell me how great the bread was!"
"I enjoyed this bread. I made the dough in the bread machine, and then transferred it to an 8x4x2 loaf pan. The loaf is rather large, and next time I will split the dough into two pans. I used quick oats for the recipe."
"this recipe was great but i think i may need a little more sugar or someting? although it was sweet it just wasnt sweet enough for my liking... but this was an excelent recipe and i did truly love the bread."
"This IS great bread. I modified for a 1 1/2 lb loaf and substituted the maple syrup with 1 tsp. maple flavoring, 2 TBS splenda, and 1 TBS sugar. I also used 1 TBS vital wheat gluten, and 2 TBS ground flax seed. Oh, and I added chopped walnuts. I guess I got carried away! This makes a wonderful nutty, sweet (but not too sweet) bread. Try it!"
"I will not give this stars at this time because it is my first attempt at bread of any sort and I don't know if I messed up. I changed it to a 1.5 lb loaf but it was not sweet at all. my hubby would not even eat it. I might try again and add some brown sugar or something."
"This is the cat's meow... i've tried five cinnamon raisin bread recipes.... had to throw all of them out.. didn't rise..taste terrible. Had no trouble with resa 66's recipe , taste was a 5 plus rating......i did add 1 tbsp. Hodgson mill vital wheat gluten.. use it in all bread machine recipes... dh said "oh no" not more of that crap... well he tasted it and could not believe the difference... come on guys let's give this recipe more ratings !!!!!!!!!!! "
"Wonderful bread!!! The house smelled great while it was baking...texture is perfect. It stuck to the side of the breadmaker some, but I didn't add more flour and I'm glad I didn't. It turned out perfect. Thank you for a terrific recipe. I can't wait to toast it tomorrow morning."
