Bread-maker Cinnamon Raisin Bread

When I was a kid... teenager... and even now, I love, love love a few slices of cinnamon-raisin bread, toasted and buttered for breakfast.  Just delicious.  Now that I'm kinda* a grown-up, I think that making it myself justifies the throwback.

Note: I haven't tried this without a breadmaker, so I'm not sure how it would turn out.

*I'm clearly not a grown-up.


Bread-maker Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Ingredients:

- 7 c. water
- 2 T. butter
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 c. bread flour
- 2 T. sugar
- 1 1/2 T. dry milk
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 package active yeast
- 3/4 c. raisins

In a bread maker, combine all of the liquid ingredients.  Add all of the dry ingredients except the yeast.  Make a small well in the middle of the mix and pour the yeast in.  Make sure there is no liquid touching the yeast.

Bake according to your bread maker instructions.  I like a medium crust, but feel free to adjust.  You should have a setting to let you know when to sprinkle in the raisins during the kneading process.

Delicious.  Childhood revisited.
