Cinnamon Raisin Bread 💜 (naturally sweetened)
There’s nothing quite as soothing + delicious as a warm, buttered slice of cinnamon raisin toast. I adored it as a child and it’s still one of my favorites today. And I love to make it from scratch because it fills your kitchen with warm, sweet and spicy aromas—an incredible way to start the day!
This grain-free version is semi sweet, more like the traditional bread, which allows for added flexibility in preparation. And there are so many options, even savory! It’s so delicious straight out of the oven with a drizzle of honey and even better toasted with a pat of butter. It’s fantastic for making French toast and it also works beautifully as toasted sandwich bread—we love to pair it with ham, Swiss and honey mustard. And if you have any leftover, bread pudding is another excellent choice!
Tips for today:
-Tapioca starch can be used instead of potato starch, measurements in recipe below.
-We used a 1 pound loaf pan for this recipe.
-Allowing your bread to cool completely after baking will give it time it to firm up and become the ideal texture for toasting. Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices and toast at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or on the light to medium setting on your toaster.
-This recipe can easily be made dairy-free by subbing milk with plain, unsweetened almond milk.
-For our French Toast, we use a couple of eggs, about 1/2 cup of almond milk, pinch of nutmeg + cinnamon, vanilla extract + orange zest. On extra cold days, we add a little bourbon.😋
Enjoy the recipe + Happy Bread Baking!😊
