  • We can make this bread in four simple steps
    Step 1
    Prepare the dough.
    Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then add milk and butter and combine everything together.
    Knead the dough for 6-8 minutes.
    Step 2
    Shape the dough.
    Roll the dough into a rectangle.
    Sprinkle the cinnamon powder,sugar and raisins on top.
    Roll the dough to form a log, pinch seam to seal..
    Place it onto the loaf pan.Wrap it up with a plastic film.
    Step 3
    Proof the dough for 2 hours.
    Step 4
    Bake it at 350 F preheated oven in the lower rack of the oven.The bread may get browned faster,in that case you can tent the top of the bread with an aluminum foil to prevent over browning.
    Let the bread sit in the pan for 10 minutes.
    Transfer the bread on to a cooling rack and wait for until the bread has cooled down completely.
