Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Bread – Bread Machine

Toast is one of my favorite things for breakfast. Sure muffins, scones, cereal, bagels, etc. are nice, but there is just something about a warm piece of toast. One of my favorite breads to toast is cinnamon raisin.

Part of it is that it tastes great and the other part is that it smells so good while toasting!

This bread is no different. The cinnamon and nutmeg provide both great flavors and great aromas! In fact, I’m pretty sure I was pacing the kitchen waiting for the last ten minutes of the baking to be finished.

I would go and do something and then come back and check the time on the bread machine and sure enough, it hadn’t magically elapsed 10 minutes. In fact, the most it ever changed was two! But it smelled so good!!

This is right up there with the cinnamon swirl bread that I make as far as flavor. The bonus with this bread though, is that it is made in the bread machine and not the oven.

That means I can go about getting things done without having to knead, let it rise, punch it down, let it rise a second time, etc.

This bread is light and fluffy despite containing wheat flour and oats and is perfect plain or with a light layer of butter or whipped cream cheese. This bread is also great toasted (as already mentioned!) or used to make french toast!

Does your bread machine have a sweet bread setting? Many machines have a timer that beeps automatically when it's time to add the raisins manually.

My machine has that alarm on the sweet bread setting only, as well as an alarm that tells me when it's about to begin the baking cycle. If yours does this, then this is a good time to remove the mixing paddle and/ or create a spiral in the loaf.. to do this, I remove the dough, roll it into a rectangle with the short side equal to the length of the bread machine's loaf pan, sprnkle cinnamon (and whatever else you like), and then roll it up so the cinnamon creates that quintessential spiral. Place into the loaf pan so the spiral runs lengthwise. When you slice the loaf 🍞 you'll see the spiral! Good luck!

HI Jessica! I just took the bread out of the machine and had to let you know it's delicious! I cut back on the salt to one teaspoon and it's still a little salty so I'll cut back a little more. I ate my piece hot right out of the machine with butter, yum-yum! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

I absolutely love freshly made bread. Nothing can really beat it. Well, except homemade ice cream. But still, there really is no other comparison!
