I made bread. But not just any bread. Not a banana bread or pumpkin bread (which is what I am making next). I made bread with yeast, which always makes me nervous. I used to make my own pizza dough with yeast, but it seemed to come out different every time so I am not crazy about using this. But when I saw the recipe for Cinnamon Raising English Muffin Bread by Averie Cooks, I knew I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did because it was extremely easy to make. You don’t have to let the yeast rest and you don’t need to knead the dough. Two big steps I am happy to not do. Click here for the recipe!
I did have a difficult time getting the raisins to evenly mix in the dough. I didn’t want to over mix the dough by trying to stir them in but they all seemed to stick in one spot. When I put the dough in the pan, I sprinkled more raisins to try and even it out.
Once you get the dough in the pan, let it sit for about an hour to rise. Sprinkle it with a cinnamon-sugar mixture and bake!
I absolutely love the combination of cinnamon and sugar, especially with holiday baking. And you can’t go wrong when you mix it with butter to spread on this bread.
This bread is absolutely delicious when you toast it and spread a little butter on it. The butter melts into the little nooks and crannies and you are left with the flavor of cinnamon and sugar. Since I am home all day due to the hurricane, it is going to be very difficult not to eat this whole thing!
