Cinnamon Raisin Bread with Brown Sugar Crumble
Everyone in my family loves fresh bread! With this recipe, I took my ordinary white bread recipe and turned it up a notch to make it extra special, and extra delicious! This recipe makes two loaves of cinnamon raisin bread. I can never get away with just making one - with a husband and four hungry kids, the first loaf is usually gone before it even has time to cool. Making two loaves gives my family a chance to enjoy a wonderfully warm treat, and the opportunity to enjoy it later in the week as well. Hope you enjoy it!
If you don't have a kitchen aid mixer you can still make this fantastic bread - it just means you get a good workout in on the arms with the kneading. If you have kids or grandkids who like to get in on the baking action - give them a turn to knead. They will not only love your raisin bread - but they will love that they were a part of making something so yummy!
Don't forget to clean and flour the surface you are rolling your dough out on - that extra flour won't hurt your dough a bit!
Try to roll your bread up as tightly as possible - its ok if it doesn't look pretty - you just want to make sure it's all sealed up so none of the cinnamon sugary goodness can't escape. Once you put it back to rise in the bread pan - it will rise to perfection.
Plain or toasted, with or without butter, there's no way you can go wrong with this raisin bread. I think you'll enjoy it just as much as Levi! Like this recipe? Check out this recipe and more at www.oursouthernstyle.com
