Cinnamon, Raisin & Walnut Loaf

I love a good fruit loaf, and I love cinnamon even more (you know the cinnamon jelly bellies everyone avoids – I love ’em, pass ’em my way!) – and this little loaf, bread, cake thing (getting technical now…) smells amazing while it’s cooking.

Cinnamon, Raisin & Walnut Loaf

  • 125ml milk
  • 50g butter for the bread mix and 50g for the cinnamon spread
  • 1/2 a packet of instant yeast
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 20g sugar
  • 225g strong white flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 100g rainsins
  • 50g chopped walnuts
  • A little honey
  1. Heat the milk until warm, then remove from the heat and add the butter.  Allow it melt into the milk and then cool to lukewarm.
  2. Once the milk and butter have combined and cooled slightly, pour them into the bread machine/mixing bowl.  Add the dry ingredients on top (hold back a few raisins and walnuts to decorate the top).  If you’re using a bread machine, set it to the dough programme (number 6 on mine).
  3. Once the dough is done separate into two equally sized balls.  Roll out into two flat rectangles (no need to be fussy about the shape!) – combine the cinnamon and butter into a paste and spread across each piece of dough.
  4. Roll each piece into a sausage shape (cinnamon on the inside) and then roughly twist the two pieces together.
  5. Throw into a loaf tin, glaze with honey, scatter the extra raisins and walnuts over the top and bake for around 25 minutes at 180 degrees.
