  • bread machine


For Dough

  • ¾ cup warm milk
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 ½ cups bread flour
  • 1 ¾ tsp yeast, active dry or instant

For Cinnamon Swirl

  • 1 ¼ cups raisins
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • ½ tbsp cinnamon


  • Heat the milk to 110°. Add the butter to the milk and and stir to melt. Add to the bread pan.
  • Add the egg, salt, sugar, bread flour, and yeast to the bread pan in that order (for a Cuisinart machine). If you have a different brand, follow the manual and add ingredients in the order it requires.
  • Select the basic/white bread function on the menu. Change to 1 lb for size and select your crust color preference. Press start to begin cycle. (if your machine does not have a 1 lb setting, choose the 1.5 lb setting and end baking cycle 10 minutes early)
  • While dough is kneading, combine the cinnamon swirl ingredients in a separate bowl. The machine will sound with 5 beeps at the end of the second kneading cycle. Add the cinnamon swirl ingredients to the dough now. The kneading cycle will continue automatically.
  • At the end of the third kneading cycle (signaled with 6 beeps) remove the kneading paddle. Roll dough back into a ball and put back into the bread pan.
  • When done, let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before slicing.


If your machine does not have a 1 lb setting, choose the 1.5 lb setting and end baking cycle 10 minutes early.
Store sliced bread in an airtight container for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
