I tried to make soft white bread in my bread machine, but every recipe I tried didn’t rise, or came out too heavy, or wasn't soft enough. I live in the mountains and have some problems with bread rising, but I kept wondering why none of the recipes I tried would work because my cinnamon-raisin bread recipe always comes out perfect. Then I got an idea. Why not try the cinnamon raisin bread and keep out the cinnamons and raisins? Now I make the biggest loaves of soft white bread every time!
