1 1/4 cups water or milk
4 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter (cut into 4 pieces)
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar (Splenda brown/white mix works fine)
2 tablespoons dry milk (do not use if you are using milk instead of water)
2 tablespoons cinnamon (more or less, to your taste)
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1 cup raisins, soaked in 1 cup warm water
Set the bread machine to the basic cycle. Add the in the order recommended by the machine’s manufacturer. Add the raisins, drained, at the add-in signal.
This recipe is highly adaptable. Like less cinnamon? Use less. Want a more cinnamony taste? Add more. Feel free to add other spices, such as nutmeg, ground cloves, or a wee bit of ground ginger. Don’t like raisins? Leave them out. If you like nuts, add some at the add-in signal. And if you want to add in some cooked bacon, I will not judge you.
