Must have bread

I bought the book ‘Make the Bread, Buy the Butter’ by Jennifer Reese which features a SUPER simple everyday bread. I make this just about every week and it’s amazing. Since I enjoy experimenting with food, I discovered that this makes an A-mazing cinnamon raisin bread for breakfast or late night snacks!

Here is a link to the book on amazon–Over/dp/1451605889/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1457028233&sr=1-1&keywords=make+the+bread+buy+the+butter

I highly recommend buying it. It’s a fantastic read if nothing else.

Time: Approximately 3 hours – LOTS of waiting period

Skill level: Easy peasy

Amount: 2 loaves

You need: 

For cinnamon raisin bread add the following:

  • Raisins
  • Cinnamon

Do this:

  1. Oil inside of two 9×5″ metal loaf pans
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients using a spoon or whatever. This dough is VERY sticky. If you need to flour your hands and do it that way it’s fine.
  3. Divide into two loafs. If you want one loaf to be cinnamon bread, place half back into large bowl. Add raisins and mix. Flour a board or counter and place the dough on top. Roll out to a square at least 9″ wide for your loaf pan. (Maybe about 1/4″ thick) Sprinkle lots of cinnamon on top. Roll up the dough.
  4. Place into pans. Spread or press out evenly. (you may need to sprinkle on flour to make it spread easier)
  5. Place a clean dish towel over the top and let rise for 2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 450
  7. Bake for 30minutes
  8. Remove the loaves from the pans and bake directly on rack for 10 more minutes.
  9. Cool. Or don’t because it’s too amazing to wait.
