Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread (for the bread machine)

Here’s the recipe for the Cinnamon Raisin Bread we make in our bread machine. This comes out quite nicely, but doesn’t raise into a tall loaf. The texture and flavor are wonderful, though. This is a recipe that Dani and I have adapted to meet the needs of our family. You certainly may substitute regular sugar for the evaporated cane juice if you prefer.

(If you click on the links below, and then make a purchase, some of them may put a few pennies into my pocket. Of course, there is no additional cost to you. I am always grateful to those of you who choose to bless me this way. You can read about how I spend those pennies, and more about how I earn them, in my disclosure policy.)

For those of you new to using your bread machines, or who just want to add some variety to your bread baking, I would recommend these wonderful books (all of which I own and use):


1 1/8 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons evaporated cane juice
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
3/4 cup raisin

This recipe makes a 1 1/2 lb.mloaf. Load the ingredients in the order specified by your bread machine, and bake on a sweet bread or fruit & nut bread setting, if your machine has it.

  • That sounds very good. Thank you. I think I will pull out the bread maker and try this.

  • Dear Cheryl,

    Thank you so much for this.  I had a bread machine but it broke.  Then my dear neighbor Ann offered me hers cause she didn’t want it.  I had said no at the time because I really didn’t have the space for it.

    But hubby and I have been reorganizing (and throwing lots of stuff away or donating it) so now I have more room   :).

    So I told her if she hadn’t changed her mind I’d like it.  And I will be trying this recipe real soon. (Soon as I figure out how to work it, I’m gonna look for guidance on line.   Have a great day!


  • Cheryl, thank you so much for sharing your recipe! I look forward to making it this week. 🙂

  • Thank you for sharing. I will have to try this when I restock my wheat flour!

  • I think i will try this too. IF i wanted to use honey is it still 2T? Thank you

  • Marcy2tex – I don’t know if the honey will work the same or not.  My best advice, give it a whirl and see what happens!
