Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Oh my! This is a lovely easy recipe which you can make in a bread machine.

The texture of the bread is lovely and soft and with the addition of raisins and cinnamon, imagine the aroma when this is baking!

I love to eat this cinnamon and raisin bread sliced and toasted and then a delicious spread of butter on the top whilst the toast is still hot. It makes for a perfect breakfast or as a snack.

I've also used this bread to make French Toast. I used our Blueberry Bread And Butter recipe for the egg mixture amounts and slices of cinnamon raisin bread.  So delicious!

This tasty recipe has been generously shared by one of our great cooks, Carina. She's always coming up with great recipes, and here we have Carina's Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Carina tells me she has adapted this recipe from the instruction book which came with her Breadmaker. She has made this recipe using the machine, and also in the oven, so you can choose which way you prefer!

If you don't have a bread machine or a mixer, we have a great tutorial here on how to knead, rise and shape dough by hand. It's very straightforward, you just need a little effort with the kneading of the dough.

  1. I’m a diabetic and love this type of bread, and your bread looks mouth-watering! Do you know of a site where I can put in the ingredients to figure out the sugar and carbs per serving size? I know its a strange request, and maybe one of your followers might know. Thank you.

    1. Hi Geraldine, yes, if you’re going to do it in the oven, I am assuming you’re not going to use the bread maker for any part of the recipe, but elbow grease or a stand mixer? Then you will need to pop the yeast in warm water, (I always use rapid rise), the temperature of the water should be just warm so you can touch it, not scolding. I usually put half boiling water and half cold and that seems to be a good temperature to work the yeast. Hope that helps!

      1. Thank you yes this helps. I am using a stand mixer.If using rapid rise I don’t need to proof the yeast then? Just add to the stand mixer in the order they are written but using warm water. Have I got all this right? lol

      2. Hmmmm ok, I didn’t know I had to activate rapid rise yeast. Thought it was just added to the dry ingredients.lol thanks

  2. i love this article, its the most easiest way and to follow the instruction for those new to baking.
    TIp: I use a toaster as my oven, since some of the newbie dont have a complete baking tools

    The only constraint is the size, since you cannot put as big as oven can cater, but using a toaster is a starter for learning and baking for cute cupcake size..

  3. Can this be totally done in the bread machine?I.e. Mix, rise and bake. I am confused as to why this is called a recipe for a bread maker, sorry, not usually this dense.

  4. Hi! My bread machine has two “quick” settings, ExpressBake 58 min and ExpressBake 80 min. I used the 58 min one because that’s the one I always use, but the inside was gooey. Should I try 80 min next or would it be better to just use “Basic” (which is 3 hours)? Thanks so much!!

  5. I don’t have a Quick Bread setting. My 4 options are white, whole wheat, rapid (to use with rapid yeast, I think), or dough…. Do you think the normal White setting would work, and do you think I need to reduce the amount of yeast with that? I’ll have to experiment!

    1. Hi Megan, I am sure it will be ok. For my ‘quick’ setting I used, it is only the time which was different compared to the other settings, in that it was faster. So I wonder if your ‘rapid’ setting is like that too? The yeast I use is just the ones I get in the sachets, which is the quick acting yeast, so I would be inclined to try the rapid setting, and stick to the ingredients listed. It’s always hard to give precise directions when using machines because all the machines vary so much!
      Please do pop back and let us know what worked so we have the info for others too!
      Thanks for taking the time to write in and have a wonderful weekend Megan

    1. Hi Stephanie, I use the quick cycle purely because I am impatient and usually can’t wait to eat the bread!! The rise seems to not be any different, just the total time is much shorter. It is just the cycle I always use so that is why I wrote that in the recipe. If you want to use a setting which you’re used to, please do! I just write what I use to help those who are not familiar with bread machine recipe.

  6. Great and easy recipe. Just took mine out of the oven and it’s perfect: toasted crust with a soft/fluffy inside. I’m pretty sure it won’t last until tomorrow… Next time will add a bit more of cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing!
