This homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread features:
- This recipe is from Cook’s Country, one of the trusted websites I turn to when learning to make something new.
- The egg wash is a must before sprinkling the filling over the dough. It helps bind the bread so the area around the filling doesn’t gap.
- A lot of raisins throughout the bread, sweet cinnamon swirl in the soft center, crunchy crust for a rustic feel.
The brown sugar and cinnamon swirl add character to the bread along with the rustic outer appearance. Using only brown sugar and a generous amount of cinnamon yielded a more flavorful result. Brush a thin coat of egg wash on the dough before sprinkling the cinnamon sugar filling to create a “glue” that binds the bread together once it is rolled.
Tip: When working with yeast dough, let the dough rise until it has doubled in bulk. Rise times are only an estimate used to guide you. There are many variables in which rise times could be affected so always let the dough rise until it has doubled in bulk.
