Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread


Delicioso! Made using bread machine and normal oven, also usable without bread machine. Like a giant cinnamon bun.

2 - 9x5 inch loaves


  • 1 ½ cups warm water

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 2 tablespoons shortening

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups bread flour

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Place water, milk, shortening, salt, flour, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select cycle; press Start.

  2. If your machine has a Fruit setting, add the raisins at the signal, or about 5 minutes before the kneading cycle has finished.

  3. Remove dough from the machine after the first rising cycle has finished. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a rectangle. Spread dough with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Roll dough, and divide into two parts. Place loaves in two lightly greased 9x5 inch bread pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Brush tops of risen loaves with melted butter and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until crust is brown and loaves sound hollow when tapped.


To make this recipe in a stand mixer, use the dough hook on speed 1 for about ten minutes, or until a small piece of dough stretches out between your fingers in a "windowpane". Add the raisins and mix another 2 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap; let rise until doubled, about 60 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and proceed with the recipe as instructed in Step 3.
