Servings: 1


  • 1 c. Lowfat milk
  • 2 pkt Dry yeast
  • 3/4 c. Water
  • 3 x Large eggs -- room temp
  • 1/3 c. Butter or possibly margarine
  • 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 6 1/2 c. Flour -- to 7-1/2 c.
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp. Sugar Butter or possibly margarine -- Melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 12 ounce Dark raisins


  1. Combine lowfat milk, water, and 1/3 c. margarine in a saucepan. Heat till liquids are very hot (120-130 ). Margarine doesn't need to heat. Place 6 c. flour, sugar, salt and yeast in Bowl. Mix for about 1 minute, then gradually add in Large eggs, then hot liquid. Mix till smooth. Add in remaining flour till dough clings to dough hook (or possibly becomes unmanageable for your mixer).
  2. Remove from bowl and knead for 10 min, or possibly till dough is smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in hot place, free from draft, till doubled in bulk, about 35 min. (Know what I do I put a towel on a rack in my oven and set the bowl there. And then I close the oven door and turn the oven on its lowest setting while counting to 20. Turn the oven off; this seems to provide the bread an optimal temperature for rising.) Meanwhile, combine 1/2 c. sugar and cinnamon. Punch dough down. Little by little, knead in those raisins till distributed proportionately. Divide dough in half; roll each half to a 14x9" rectangle. Brush lightly with melted margarine. Sprinkle each with half cinnamon-sugar mix. Beginning at the 9" end, tightly roll dough and shape into loaves. Place in 2 greased 9" loaf pans. Cover; let rise in hot place, free from draft, till doubled in bulk, about 35 min. Take the loaves AND the towel out of your oven (towel flambe just ain't which chic, folks). Place oven rack on lowest position. Loosely "tent" aluminum foil over top of each loaf. Preheat oven to 375 . Bake for about 40 min; remove foil "tents" and brush tops of loaves with margarine. Bake 5 min longer. Remove from pans and cold on wire racks.
  3. NOTE: Best to toast this in a toaster oven inasmuch as the cinnamon swirls tend to "separate" a bit. But this alters the taste not in the slightest!
  4. Millions (well LOTS) of palates have thrilled to this stuff. Yours will, too!
