Bread Machine – Golden Raisin Cinnamon Bread

Bread Machine - Golden Raisin Cinnamon Bread

This bread machine raisin cinnamon bread recipe creates a delicious bread that is perfect for breakfast. Spread on your favorite topping (i.e. cream cheese or jam) for a great breakfast meal. However, if you just LOVE cinnamon, you can even use it for a tasty sandwich bread.

What makes this recipe special are the golden raisins. I like golden raisins much better than regular raisins because they tend to be sweeter, “plumper” and help to produce a multi-colored bread (see pictures below). Moreover, regular raisins are occasionally too dried out. For more information on golden raisins, please read our recipe question section (which is below the recipe instructions).

This bread machine golden raisin cinnamon bread recipe produces a sweet and fruity breakfast bread… and it looks great too. I love the raisins poking out of the finished bread. Although my wife tends to pick them off and eat them before I can take a photo! If you like golden raisins, you might also like to try our Cranberry & Golden Raisin Bread Machine Recipe.

Since this raisin cinnamon bread recipe is done in a bread machine, it is simple & easy to make. It should take you only 5 minutes or so to prepare and then you let the bread machine do the rest of the work. For more great recipes, please visit Bread Dad’s main Bread Machine Recipes section. Bread Dad also has a printable and “pin-able” recipe at the bottom of the page.

Instructions – Bread Machine – Golden Raisin Cinnamon Bread

  • Bread machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread setting.
  • Mix the water and instant nonfat milk powder first.
  • Pour this instant milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients (except the golden raisins). Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
  • Start the machine going after checking the settings.
  • After the bread machine has finished its FIRST kneading cycle (and before it has started the second kneading cycle), add the golden raisins.
  • When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, you should remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) as it will be very hot!
  • After removing the bread, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
  • In our bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
  • Before using your bread machine, you should read the bread machine manufacturer’s  instructions in order to use the bread machine effectively and safely.

Tips – Bread Machine – Golden Raisin Cinnamon Bread

  • If you add the raisins before the first kneading, they can become very fragmented (chopped up) by the two kneading cycles.
  • We use one minute oatmeal (versus old fashioned oatmeal) in this raisin cinnamon recipe in order to make it a little softer. However, if you want to use less processed oats, you can replace the one minute oatmeal with old fashioned oatmeal.
  • If you want to turn this raisin cinnamon bread into even more of a breakfast bread, you can sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top of the dough after the final kneading cycle and before the baking cycle commences.

Raisin Cinnamon Bread Machine Questions

What is the difference between golden and regular raisins?

Regular raisins are often sun dried which leaves them darker and drier. In contrast, golden raisins are dried in dehydrators with controlled temperature and humidity levels. This allows golden raisins to retain a lighter color and more moisture. California golden raisins and regular raisins tend to come from pale green Thompson Seedless grapes.

If you want to read more about the grapes used in America to make regular raisins and golden raisins, you should read this Wikipedia article.

Do golden raisins taste different?

Golden raisins taste different from regular raisins. Golden raisins tend to be sweeter, plumper and look great (golden colored). Moreover, regular raisins occasionally have the problem of being too dried out.

Where does cinnamon come from?

Cinnamon comes from the bark of Cinnamomum trees. The primary producers of cinnamon are Indonesia, China, Vietnam and Sri Lanka.
