Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread is so tender and fluffy, with swirls of cinnamon, butter and raisins throughout the rich bread. It is perfect to enjoy right out of the oven and also makes excellent toast, French toast or bread pudding.
For the yeast dough, you can mix it by hand or use a standing mixer with a dough hook attachment. You can also use a bread machine, set to the “Dough” setting.
One of my favorite tricks is to wrap the bowl in a towel and place it inside a heated blanket. The bread dough rises evenly and very quickly.
Bread can be kept in airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Baked bread freezes really well too. If you make 2 loaves, you can freeze one of them or freeze slices, however you want.
