When I was growing up I would often wake up to the smell of cinnamon raisin bread toasting in the toaster. It was always cinnamon raisin bread with a tall glass of chocolate milk for my dad for breakfast (unless we had chocolate chip cookies then he had those with the chocolate milk :)
The smell of cinnamon raisin bread is very nostalgic for me so when my father in law told me how much he loved it I jumped at the opportunity to make it for him. I used the recipe from Peter Reihhart's "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" which is my new favorite bread book of all time. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to bake bread. The pizza crust and ciabatta recipes are also exceptionally good.
Recipe coming soon!
