SERVES

Ingredients

  • 2 x ¼ oz envelopes active dry yeast 

  • 2 ¼ cups warm water 

  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus a little more to butter loaf pans)  

  • 4 tbsp + 1 tbsp Drizzle Cacao Luxe Raw Honey 

  • Salt 

  • ¾ cups raisins 

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour 

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour 

  • ½ cup sugar 

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon 

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast over ½ cup warm water. Whisk until yeast dissolves. Let stand until foamy.

  2. Then, place yeast mixture in a bowl of a standing mixer, with the dough-hook attachment.  

  3. Add unsalted butter, 1 ¾ cups water and 4 tbsp Drizzle Cacao Luxe Raw Honey. 

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and salt.  

  5. Add 3 cups of the flour mixture to the yeast mixture. Mix on low speed until very smooth.  

  6. Add raisins and remaining flours (one cup at a time), and mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.  

  7. Butter a large bowl, and transfer dough to the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place until it doubles in volume. This will take 1 – 1 ½ hour.  

  8. Butter 2 4 ½ x 8 ½ loaf pans.  

  9. Punch down the dough, and divide in half. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.  

  10. Lightly dust the counter with flour. Roll out each dough half into a ½ inch thick rectangle. Sprinkle the sugar & cinnamon on top, leaving a 1” border around the edge.  

  11. Starting with the short side, tightly roll each dough into a log.  

  12. Transfer the dough, seam side down into prepared loaf pans.  

  13. Brush each loaf with melted butter.  

  14. Place plastic wrap over each loaf, and let rise 1 hour.  

  15. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450°F 

  16. Reduce oven to 400 & place loaf pans into the oven.  

  17. Bake for 20 minutes, then rotate pans & bake for another 25 – 30 minutes.  

  18. Transfer to wire racks to cool, before turning out loaves.  

  19. For a special taste treat, slice & toast bread, then top with cinnamon butter!
