Recipe Ingredients for Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

1 tbsp ground Flax seed
6 cups all-purpose flour (Eagle Mills Ultragrain)
3 tbsp Splenda
2 packages dry instant yeast
2 1/4 cups warm water
1 tbsp granulated sugar (for yeast)
4 tbsp brown sugar, divided
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp skim milk
2 egg whites
2 tbsp light spread
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

  1. In a small bowl, combine raisins with enough hot water to cover. Plump for 1 hour; drain well. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine flax seed, 3 tbsp Splenda, tbsp cinnamon and 3 cups of the flour.

  3. Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water and 1 Tbsp of sugar. Let stand for five minutes.

  4. In medium saucepan, heat milk, remaining 1 3/4 cups warm water, 2 tbsp brown sugar, salt, and 1 tbsp butter just until warm and butter is almost melted, stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture; add eggs and yeast mixture.

  5. Hand mix for about 1 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Knead with electric mixer 3 minutes (or until smooth), scraping bowl occasionally (Note: If you use regular mixer attachments instead of kneading attachments, the dough will climbyour attachments). Stir in plumped raisins. Stir in as much of the remaining flour (s/b 2.5 cups) that can be mixed in with a spoon.

  6. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic, about 6-10 minutes. Shape into a ball. Place the dough in a greased bowl, roll it around so all the dough is coated, cover with a towel and let it rise in a warm place (85 F) until doubled (about an hour fifteen minutes).

  7. Punch down the dough, divide in half. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Roll them out on a floured surface so they are both about 15x7 inches. You may need to roll, let the dough rest, and roll again so you get the right size.

  8. Mix together 2 tbsp granulated sugar, 2 tbsp brown sugar and 1 Tbsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle each rolled out loaf with 1 Tbsp of water and half of the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

  9. Roll the dough jelly-roll fashion, from the short end and pinch the edges and ends to seal. You should have a 7 inch long rolled up piece of dough.

  10. Place into a greased 9" loaf pans. Brush the tops of the loaves with 2 Tbsp melted spread, cover and let them rise until nearly doubled (about 1 hour).

  11. Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped, covering bread with foil the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. The loaves should have a dark golden brown top. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool. (Place pan of water in bottom of oven so bread doesn?t dry out while baking)
