Cinnamon Swirl Bread



 Ever since I conquered my first loaf of perfect white bread I have been keen to branch out and try something else.  I wanted to really master the white loaf first.   I have made it every week for about a month now and it has turned out lovely each time.  Today was the day, I felt, for something completely different.

 
Back home I always loved the Cinnamon Swirl Raisin Bread you could buy at the shops.  I wondered if I could replicate it.  It was lovely with a cinnamon flavoured dough  . . .  studded with sticky raisins and then a swirl of cinnamon inside so that when you cut into it you got a nice cinnamon swirl through every slice.

 
I used the basic recipe for the perfect white bread but added some ground cinnamon, some vanilla and lots of raisins to the recipe.  As you can see it rose beautifully.

I tried not to overdo it with the raisins and they all stayed inside the loaf so we did not end up with any burnt raisins sticking out here and there.  I was happy about that.  When I was ready to shape it, I patted it out, spread it with butter, topped it with some brown sugar and cinnamon and rolled it up tightly.

I don't think that I actually needed the butter, the cinnamon and brown sugar would have probably worked well in any case.  But it did make the filling a bit gooey, which was nice also.  This is an almost to the end piece that you are looking at . . .

I can promise you it is a lot more swirled in the centre of the loaf than what you see here, and it is absolutely flipping gorgeous toasted!

A riff on my favouite bread recipe stogged full of sticky raisins and a delicious cinnamon swirl.  Try it toasted for a real treat!

For the swirl:softened butter for spreading200g soft light brown sugar ( 1 cup, packed)2 tsp ground cinnamon

 
Dissolve the yeast in the 178ml (3/4 cup) of warm water, stirring.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Add the remaining water, vanilla, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, sugar, salt, room temperature butter and 625g (5 cups) of the flour, and the raisins, stirring to combine.  Using a wooden spoon stir in the remainder of the flour a little bit at a time until the dough is soft and tacky, but not sticky.  Continue to knead until a soft ball of dough forms that clears the side of the bowl. This will take about 10 minutes.  Not a problem. Just put some music on that you love listening to and lose yourself in the music as you knead.  Shape into a smooth ball and place in ...
