Overnight Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread

4.1
(14)

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.

Ingredients

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • ¾ cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ cup shortening

  • 2 cups lukewarm buttermilk

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup raisins

Directions

  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.
