Keyword: Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread recipe
Yield: 2 loaves

Materials

  • 2 cups Arrowhead Mills Organic All-Purpose Flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 cups Arrowhead Mills Organic Whole Wheat Flour - Stone Ground
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil plus more for brushing
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons instant dry yeast
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water 120-130°F
  • cooking spray
  • cup golden raisins soaked in boiling water for 15 minutes, drain and pat dry
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon plus 1 teaspoon
  • cup packed dark brown sugar

Instructions

  • Combine both flours, dry milk, egg, canola oil, honey, salt, yeast and warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook.
  • Mix 3 minutes on the lowest setting, then increase to the next highest setting and mix 5 more minutes. The dough should be soft and sticky.
  • Let it rise.
  • Transfer the dough to a large bowl coated with cooking spray. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until the dough has nearly doubled in size, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.
  • Fold the dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured work surface. Picture it a loose square.
  • Lift up one side of the dough and fold about ¹⁄3 of it across; press down on the dough with spread fingers to remove any air bubbles.
  • Repeat with the remaining 3 sides of the dough.
  • Add the filling.
  • Mist two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray. Divide the dough in half; roll out each half into an 8-inch square.
  • Brush each square with canola oil, then sprinkle with the cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins.
  • Form the loaves.
  • Roll up each square of dough into a tight cylinder; place seam-side down in the prepared pans.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until the dough fills the pans and springs back when touched, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.
  • Brush loaves lightly with canola oil.
  • Place bread in preheated oven 375°F. Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the pans and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
