Jump to Recipe

The bread machine makes it so simple to have fresh bread whenever we want it. I usually make just a loaf of white bread to go with our soups or stews. It was time to try something new, though, so I went with a sweet cinnamon raisin bread.

We all had a slice of the cinnamon raisin bread with a bit of butter spread on it for breakfast. The crust has a slightly sweet taste and the raisins add just the right amount of chewiness to the bread. Tyler said next time we need to add more raisins because he wants one in every bite. I plan to increase the amount of cinnamon next time.
