Cinnamon loaf

This is my kind of bread. I have made this many times, trying to perfect it.

I wanted to give it the exact cinnamon and raisin ratio. I don’t like the kind of cinnamon bread that has to much cinnamon. You know the kind that burns your throat as you eat it. You also want to have plenty of raisin to bread ratio. This has it. It is great as is or toasted. I mostly like this in the morning with a pat of butter. It is very good in the afternoon with coffee as a pick me up.

Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix it and then add the salt and cinnamon. Add 1/2 cup flour to the mixture until all the flour is incorporated. Fold in raisins. The dough should be sticky.
