Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Perfect for breakfast or as a snack! 


Yields 2 loaves

  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 3/4 c. warm water
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 1/3 c. Firebee Cinnamon Honey
  • 2 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. warm milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 1/2 - 6 c. bread flour
  • 1 c. raisins
Cinnamon Filling
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3-4 Tbsp. melted butter


Step 1

Combine warm water and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer. Allow it to set for about 5-10 minutes or until it gets foamy on top.

Step 2

Add in the butter, Firebee Cinnamon Honey, salt, and milk in a small bowl. Microwave until the butter melts and stir it together.

Step 3

Pour the butter mixture in with the yeast mixture and stir to combine. Add the eggs and mix again.

Step 4

Gradually add in the flour and raisins until a soft dough is formed. Cover with a damp towel and allow to rise for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.

Step 5

While it's rising, make the cinnamon filling by combining the cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Set aside.

Step 6

Once the dough has risen, punch the dough down and remove from the bowl to a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. 

Step 7

Flatten the dough into rectangles, about 12" x 15" each using a rolling pin. 

Step 8

Melt the 3-4 Tablespoons of butter from the cinnamon topping section and brush onto the rectangles, leaving a 1" border. 

Step 9

Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top, evenly and then roll up like a jelly roll. 

Step 10

Grease 2 bread pans and place one of the loaves in each one. Cover again and allow to rise for an additional 30 minutes.

Step 11

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. 

Step 12

Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pans and cooling on racks. Enjoy warm with a swipe of butter!
