Make Ahead Tips
To have freshly-baked loaves in the morning, make and shape the loaves the night before, cover them loosely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, let them sit at room temperature for about 1 hour to finish their rise before baking.
The bread will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Let the loaves cool completely before storing them.
Editor’s Note: We’re glad many of you have enjoyed this recipe. The amount of cinnamon is correct, but to clarify a bit: There are 6 Tbs. cinnamon total, for two loaves. Two Tbs. go into the dough; the remaining 4 Tbs. get divided between the filling for the two loaves, so the filling for each loaf has 2 Tbs. cinnamon total. Hope that helps.
Great bread tasting bread. I had to add about 1/2 cup more of flour and it all came together perfectly. I used rapid rise yeast and it rose perfectly. The two loaves disappeared quickly!
This turned out fantastic....will def make it again!! Everyone kept commenting about too much cinnamon....but it is NOT...maybe they think it is all in the filling...??? Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just made this recipe but I didn't have two loaf pans so I made one half of the dough into rolls and frosted them with a cream cheese frosting, and they are awesome. The bread part itself has a "warmth" from all the cinnamon and is not at all sweet tasting without the raisins which I feel makes it perfect with a cup of coffee or tea on a brisk morning. The loaf I did make is pretty dense, but I feel that's how it should be so you can slice it fairly thin. Love this recipe!
I have made your Cinnamon-Swirl Raisin Bread several times. I always follow the directions to a T and it comes out perfect. Since this makes two loaves I have been able to freeze or gift the second loaf. Excellent recipe! Thanks so much for posting. After trying several recipes for this type of bread over the years this is the perfect recipe for our family. Make it as directed and you will not be sorry.
