Cinnamon Raisin Swirl

Ahhh cinnamon raisin swirl bread – you were so wonderful sounding and smelling and even tasting, but must you require raisins?

Overall this was really simple bread to make. It only took one day and was very easy to mix and shape. The cinnamon swirl was optional, but I decided it was neccessary. The raisins although not neccesary, but I did include them since some people do like them. If you were not wanting such a sweet bread, it could be made without the swirl and would make wonderful french toast (In case you didn’t know by I now I like french toast – hence why I mention it at least every other week.).
