Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This is one of our family's favorite bread recipes.  A friend was recently asking for it so, Katelyn, here you go!  

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Water:               1 and 1/8 cups (if doing it by hand you may want to warm it slightly)

Butter:               4 Tbs. - softened

Honey (or sucanat):   1/3 cup

Dash of salt

About 1 Tbs. Cinnamon (I like to add a little extra! :)

Raisins:              1 cup

Flour:               3 cups (you may need to add more - we used unbleached pure white flour. I've also used whole wheat or a combination of both!)

Yeast:              2 ½ tsp.

Directions: Knead all ingredients together and let rise.  Bake at 350 for about 25 min (it varies you'll just have to check it!). 

I normally make this recipe in the bread machine, but I think you could do it by hand as well - just like any other recipe.

Note: This also makes good rolls.
