Yesterday I made the Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread from BBA. It is absolutely delicious and looks just like Reinhart's photo, so I am well pleased. I loved raisin bread as a child and today the smell of it toasting warms my heart.
There are two ways to make this bread - as a loaf with cinnamon and raisins studded throughout or he suggests as an alternative, adding a cinnamon sugar swirl to an already delicious bread. Since the recipe made two loaves, I did one as a loaf and the second as a swirl.
I found it an easy bread to mix and make. Since I'm used to making breads that add dry ingredients gradually to the yeast raised in warm water, it's always unnerving to me to put all the dry ingredients into the mixer and then add the liquids. But I'm an oldest child and always follow the rules, so I do what he tells me to.
