I’ve been owning a bread machine for almost 5 years now, and with the machine there came a booklet with a couple of recipes. I tried quite a few recipes, but there are 3 recipes I make over and over again because they are so yummy. One of them is raisin bread which perfectly fits this month’s BBD.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe for a loaf of about 550 g:
- 180 ml water
- 20 g butter
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 tsp honey
- 330 g all-purpose flour (type 550)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 g instant yeast
- 50 g raisins
Place all ingredients except for the raisins in the bread pan in the order specified above. Insert the bread pan into the bread machine and select yeast-cake cycle (this program leads to a really fluffy bread). Press Start. When you hear the “Add ingredients beep signal” (most bread machines have this option) add the raisins (the signal occurs somewhere in the 2nd kneading cycle). After about 3 hours you’ll have a fluffy and sweat bread which is extremely yummy just with butter spread on it.
