Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe For Bread Machine

This homemade cinnamon raisin bread is made from start to finish in a bread machine!  All you need to do to create this delicious bread is to add the ingredients to a bread machine and press the start button.  Your house will smell so amazing that you’ll be hardly able to wait for the bread baking cycle to be done.  Then finally you’ll take the warm freshly baked cinnamon raisin bread out of your bread machine and taste the first incredible slice!

As my other bread machine recipes (see soft white sandwich bread recipe and oatmeal bread recipe), this one produces great slices that are not crumbly.  If you read the numerous comments on those two other recipes, all these people testify to the fact that those recipes produce the best quality bread machine bread they ever eaten.  Since those recipes works so well, I created this cinnamon raisin bread machine recipe using very similar ingredients, except adding raisins and cinnamon and adjusting the sugar to make this bread slightly more sweet.

If you are a fan of store-brought bread, you have to give this freshly baked goodie a try!  If you look at the ingredient list of the store-bought bread, it is scary – there is just so much stuff you won’t recognize.  When you make bread yourself, you’ll know exactly what goes into it, and it will taste so fresh without all those chemicals and preservatives!

All ingredients for this cinnamon raisin bread are common and easily found: flour, water, sugar, oil, salt, yeast, cinnamon and raisins.  You can use bread flour or regular flour – I haven’t seen much difference in a resulting bread texture.  This bread slices easily and doesn’t crumble much.  I use the serrated knife to slice it for gorgeous even slices that you see on the picture.

You can eat this bread by itself (that’s what usually happens with the warm freshly baked bread), have it with dinner or make sandwiches out of it.  And if you have some left over the next day, it makes amazing cinnamon raisin french toast!

Author:
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 1½ lb loaf
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 packet (2¼ tsp) instant dry yeast
  • ¾ cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Water has to be at lukewarm temperature (barely warm, not hot). You can either get the water of this temperature from the tap, or warm the water in a microwave.
  2. Pour the water in the bread machine.
  3. Add oil to the bread machine.
  4. Add flour to the bread machine and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
  5. On top of the flour, put sugar in one corner of the bread machine, salt in the other corner and yeast in the 3 corner (so the yeast is not touching sugar and salt).
  6. Close the bread machine cover, set the machine on White bread and 1½ pound loaf setting, and press Start.
  7. Most bread machines have a "nut and raisin" signal that beeps when the dough mixing cycle is close to the end, so you can add nuts, raisins or other extra ingredients. If your machine has this type of signal, add the raisins when it beeps the "nut and raisin" prompt. If your machine doesn't have this feature, you can add them right away.
  8. When the baking cycle is finished, take out the freshly baked cinnamon raisin bread and enjoy!

      I go through phases with my bread machine (like with all gadgets) – there are months that I use it almost every day, and there are months where it’s sitting at the back of the closet unused. Everyone needs an inspiration to start using a gadget that’s currently gathering dust, so hopefully this cinnamon raisin bread recipe will inspire you to use your bread machine!

      I have the cheapest bread machine that I got years ago for around $20. It comes in handy, not just for bread but for making any yeast-based dough (like pizza dough) on a Dough cycle. I can’t imagine kneading the yeast-based dough by hand – it seems like so much work, plus remembering all the timing. Bread machine takes all the work out of it – just put the ingredients in and press the button, and you get the gourmet freshly baked bread!

    Did you use bread machine yeast or regular instant yeast?
    This sounds great but I don’t want to mess it up!

    I am fairly new to using bread machines but I will give this a try today. For the bread machine without the beep for nuts and raisins, you said put it right away. does that mean after putting the yeast put the raisins on top? thanks

    I made this but I have no freaking clue Melanie how this bread tastes. My hubby ate the whole darn thing. Now he’s hollering for another one. Good thing we got 2 bread machines huh? My son and I might actually get some this time…
