Yield: Yields 2 loaves
Packed with plump, juicy raisins and rich cinnamon swirls, this easy-to-make bread is guaranteed to please, especially when slathered in Homemade Butter and served warm with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
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.

Haven’t made this but looking at the reviews It seems there might be 2 issues. Make sure you divide the cinnamon some in the loaf and rest in filling. Sweet breads can take longer to rise than breads with little or no sugar. There is a type of yeast formulated especially for sweet breads. SAF makes one. Also using instant yeast v regular. The regular yeast might take longer than the instant.
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!
