I’m not sure if I’m the only one on this, but my daughter can eat three loaves of raisin bread in three days, no problem. It was getting expensive so I found this recipe for Raisin Bread in a family cookbook and it is delicious. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
SWEET CINNAMON – RAISIN BREAD
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup raisins
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Coat a 9″ round cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter. Stir together until completely combined.
Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Add raisins. Using a rubber spatula, combine all the ingredients until it is just moistened. (Dough will be sticky)
Sprinkle a counter top or surface with flour. Turn dough out onto surface. Knead several times and form into a ball.
Place the dough into the greased cake pan and cut an “X” in the middle of the dough. Place into the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then place on cooling rack. Place a cookie sheet under the cooling rack and coat the warm bread with Vanilla Glaze (optional).
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsp. milk
Combine all together with a whisk.
Slice up and enjoy!!
