How to make this recipe
This Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread has lazy weekend written all over it. This bread is delicious on its own or with a light spread of butter on it. Absolutely delicious when its warm and fresh from the oven! The aroma is heavenly.
Since you are using instant yeast, the bread will only need a quick ten-minute rest. During that time you can mix up the filling and tidy up the mess. The dough is then rolled out into a rectangle, spread with butter and topped with a brown sugar filling that is loaded with chopped pecans, raisin and cinnamon.
Next, roll it up on the long side, pinch the edges to seal and let it rise for an hour. I would probably put my feet up and start a Hallmark Christmas movie and read Debbie Macomber's latest novel......if I had it. I know for a fact it's going in my stocking from Santa 🙂 Yay!
The loaf bakes for around 35 minutes and needs just a little cooling before you dust it lightly with some icing sugar. Trust me when I say that this Cinnamon Swirl Bread is EASY & DELICIOUS!
I recommend eating it on the first day. It's tasty on the second day, but definitely to-die-for when it's first-day-fresh. Wrap it in plastic wrap to store it for up to three days.
My boys went absolutely nuts over it the next morning. I sliced four thick slices and dipped them into beaten eggs and cooked it in the griddle for about two minutes per side. A light helping of maple syrup and you will have the most delicious French toast!
