Overnight Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread


"This yeast bread is a cold-rise version. The good thing about it is that you can make plain yeast rolls out of it, or make it into a cinnamon-raisin swirl loaf. Plus, this dough will last about 1 week, if you keep it wrapped in plastic wrap in your refrigerator."

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk; mix well until dough pulls together. Dough will be somewhat soft. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next morning, or when you are ready to bake your bread, take out your dough and knead in a little flour. Let dough sit at room temperature for 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Press out dough onto a lightly floured surface to a rectangle. Brush the surface with melted butter and sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Roll up dough and place, seam down, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes, or until bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

This is the first time I have made a yeast bread which came out so soft! The batter for the first half of the recipe remained pretty soft and could not be rolled into a ball. I just covered it u...

The bread is great. Caveat: The recipe makes too much for one loaf. Impossible to get it to bake all the way through. Divided the dough into two loafs, and they came out a good size -- still qu...

I have yet to taste the finished bread, but the dough tastes wonderful! :o) My dough was way too 'soft'- it wasn't even really dough!- so I had to use extra flour. I wanted it somewhat wholesome...

This bread has an awesome tastes and is very soft textured, like that of bread you get in a store. I had to modify if a bit, I only used 2 1/4 tsps of yeast( 1 packet) and used 1/4 cup brown su...

This is pretty good bread, but it makes way more than 1 loaf of bread . . .unless you have huge bread pans. I was able to get 6 huge cinnamon rolls and two medium sized loaves out of one batch....

I love this recipe! I added cinnamon to the dough and sprinkled with brown sugar,cinnamon and walnuts instead of white sugar and raisins. Tastesd better than my mom's old fashioned nut roll! tha...

I thought this tasted pretty good, but boy the dough was hard to work with as it was so sticky. I had some cinnamon bread in TN once and was always wanting to find a recipe that replicated it, a...

After reading through the various comments, I thought this would be a good bread to try to make a cinnamon apple bread (I hate raisins). I decided to make the whole batch, and split it in half ...
