Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe

Photo by: Taste of Home


  • 32 Servings
  • Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 45 min.


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Additional canola oil
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1/2 cup sugar, oil, salt, eggs and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place or until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Knead 1/2 cup raisins into each; roll each portion into a 15-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Brush with additional oil. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • Tightly roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal. Place, seam side down, in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Brush with oil. Bake at 375° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).

Laurie, and I so glad you picked My Favorite Things, because I don’t think I will ever run out of favorites!

Stop over and see the other entries this week..And if you see Laurie’s Stencils anywhere, give a yell!

Happy Sunday everyone!


  1. Everything looks so yummy. Makes me want to hit the kitchen and bake!


  2. Ok, now I'm craving corn on the cob... it's sooooo good! That raisin bread looks mighty fine too-enjoy!

  3. Kathleen, the strawberries and raisin bread would be high on my list of favorites, and your pictures of them are wonderful. Mr. Cuisine's bread definitely looks tasty. Your corn looks delicious, and my husband would definitely have it as one of his favorites.

  4. Hi Kathleen,
    I swear your blog is making me gain weight! The food looks just so good!
    Enjoy your week-end,

  5. We like the same stuff. But my list is much longer!!!


  6. Everything looks so good, but can I pick those horrible little raisins out of the bread and just have a piece of cinnamon swirl?

  7. Oh, I'm drooling here. The bread and strawberries look so tasty! I love corn on the cob and now I'm craving it! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. Everything looks great! That pizza looks like it came straight from the pizzeria! Hat's off to Mr Cuisine :)

    hey, what'd you pay for that corn? LOL, JUST KIDDING!

  9. Are you telling me that he cooks too? I'm coming to live with y'all! My mouth is watering - first the pizza got me salivating; then the strawberries; and by the time I got to the buttered corn on the cob, the saliva was on my keyboard! Delicious post! Thanks for linking some of my favorite foods to Favorite Things. laurie

  10. Bread? He bakes bread? That is incredible. What a great post.

  11. Well your husband make think you are crazy for taking pics of food, but you take some darn good pictures,and share some yummy recipes. Have a great rest of the weekend!!~

  12. I just ate, but after seeing your post I am hungry again! :D
    Enjoy your weekend.

  13. Oh man, my mouth is watering!

  14. I love raisin bread too, how I wish Dr. Xinex would bake for me, but that would be asking for the moon, lol. Your photos are beautiful, Kathleen!

  15. You have all my favorites right there!

  16. How to pick a favorite. I don't think I could. Well maybe the strawberries or the pizza.

  17. OH I can't wait for strawberry and corn season!! Delish!!

  18. What am I going to do with you? You ALWAYS make me so hungry when you post your food photos. I think you picked some of my top favorite things too!


  19. oh my . I gained 3 lbs. just looking at those photos but it was worth it.
    I'm thinking I could eat the whole loaf of raisin bread all by myself.

    wishing you a wonderful day

  20. I can't wait to bite into, freshly buttered and peppered corn on the cob but sadly that will mean that summer is almost over and I can't think about that now!

    I wish I had a Mr. Cuisine...I only have a Mr. Clean Up afterward ;)

  21. Wonderful! I am ready to pull up a bench and join you.

  22. Love your favs, Kathleen. I can't wait to share some of my favorite things next week. I really could go wild with stencils.

    Now you've got me thinking about fresh corn on the cob.

  23. I could just link to your post--those are my favorite things as well. My 5', 90 pound mother could eat six ears of corn (slathered in butter) at a sitting. She said you had to have the pot boiling before you picked the corn! Alas, I did not inherit her slim gene.

    It is pouring rain still. I think we may need an ark! This time, I hope flies, roaches and mice get left behind!


  24. P.S. My husband bakes, cooks and cleans up. I'm looking into cloning. If anyone is interested, please get in touch with me!!


  25. Now I know why we get along so well!!! Those all would be on my list too...except I would need to taste test Mike's bread!

  26. Oh that corn has my mouth watering. Can't wait for corn season. Thanks for dropping by to vist me do come again. Stella

  27. Gee, I love your kitchen! Better be careful, it isn't too long of a ride and you do know how to tempt me!! Hope all's well!

  28. Oh gosh ..Mr. Cuusine also bakess !!?? His bread looks so yummy!

    The pizza and corn on the cob and strawberries and whipped cream....mmmmmm.....they say "SUMMER" to me!

    We had spaghetti with white clam sauce of our favorite meals.

    What is not to like about food?
    ♥ Pat

  29. Your favourite things are my favourite things! Especially the pizza. And the corn. Oh and the strawberries and cream. And oh, gosh raisin bread! humph.

  30. i love good pizza, that is my new comfort food! The corn looks amazing as well, there is nothing like fresh picked corn that you roast......can't wait till it's in season!

  31. Aaaand my keyboard shorts out from all the drooling I'm doing.

    I adore fresh corn, as does my husband. That's one thing he's definitely looking forward to, especially since our move to NJ!

    That cinnamon raisin bread looks incredible and has me thinking all sorts of thoughts now...

    Strawberries? OMG. All I have to say.
