Cinnamon raisin bread is a lightly sweet yeast bread scented with cinnamon and studded with plump dried fruit. It's especially delicious for breakfast spread with butter or cream cheese. By using a bread machine, it also frees you up to make other brunch dishes like an egg casserole. Leftovers are excellent toasted or turned into delicious cinnamon French toast, and this bread freezes well, too.

Have an older style bread machiene. Sunbeam. Epic fail. Chose ‘sweet option’ and ‘rapid’ and ‘medium’ after what seemed like 2hrs of prepping,rising etc. it finally started baking. While the outsides of bread were great,it left a big liquid hole in the middle and top. It has a ‘bake delay’ setting but can only be used b4 starting cycle. Now it is in my oven trying to bake rest of the way. What crumbs i ate so far tasted good.

Indescribably delicious! I usually make banana bread by hand, so I was a touch skeptical about using the bread machine, but it came out dense and golden and smelled wonderful while baking. I began with the recipe Dee provided, then I added an extra banana, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and in lieu of nuts, a heaping tbsp. of poppy seeds. I also added 4 oz. of plain applesauce (one of those individual cups). I used a Breadman Rapid Deluxe machine, which does not allow you to stop and then bake. Instead, I used the 1 pound setting and the "fruit/nut bread" option. It takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes to produce the loaf, but it mixes and stops and mixes and stops: the actual baking part is about an hour long. The banana bread had a more cakelike than breadlike texture (due to the addition of the applesauce) and was very dense, but oh so good! I love the ease and convenience of this recipe and I will use it often. A word of caution: use a rubber spatula to scrape the corners during the mixing phase to integrate all of the flour (be careful of the machine's mixing paddle), or some of the dry ingredients may get stuck in the corners of the pan. Enjoy!

Oh rats! I believe it’s because you chose the “sweet bread” setting instead of the “quick bread” setting, Kindra. I did some googling and found this: “The sweet cycle on most bread makers is designed to prepare and bake sweet yeast breads. Don’t get it confused with the quick bread cycle, however. Quick breads don’t contain yeast, so they cook at a different pace, and require no rise time. An example of a quick bread would be something like a banana bread or zucchini bread, without yeast.”

Optional – If you want to make bread machine banana nut bread, you can add 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts to this recipe after the first bread machine mixing cycle and before the second mixing (final mixing). I like to add the chopped walnuts after the first mixing and before the final (second) mixing in order to minimize any mixing “breakage” of the chopped walnuts.

This cinnamon bread is excellent. I followed the recipe ingredients but made rolls instead of a loaf and added raisins. I LOVE the filling so I doubled the ingredients to satisfy my sweet tooth and I'm glad I did because to my liking there was barely enough to cover both rectangles. I added 1 cup Thomson raisins, soaked for 30 min. in 1/4 cup brandy with a 1/4 tsp sugar sprinkled over them (kills the bitterness) stirring a few times to coat them evenly. The dough is great to work with and not sticky at all. When I sprinkled the raisins over the sugar mix I put a sheet of wax paper to cover it and ran the rolling pin over it lightly a few times to press the mixture into the dough (makes rolling it up easier and less filling leaks out). I rolled it up from the long end and sliced it into 1" pieces and popped them into Pam-sprayed muffin tins. I always brush my rolls with soft butter and sprinkle a little brown sugar over them, about 1/8 tsp on each (to keep some yummy, gooey syrup on the tops). It only took 15 min to turn golden with syrup spread over the tops.Even though I doubled the filling very little of it leaked out. I lifted each to a rack and while still warm I drizzled the tops with basic milk/icing sugar glaze. When they cooled I drizzled a 2nd layer of glaze over the tops as it will not soak into the roll and disappear. Then I ate 4 of them! My goodness, this beautiful bread makes accidental rolls a great mistake. Thank you MN Nice for sharing.

Excellent! I could tell from the recipe that there would not be enough filling without the walnuts and since I planned to omit them I too doubled the cinnamon/sugar mixture. When baked and thickly sliced the texture of this bread is smooth and soft the sticky cinnamon-spicy sweetness oozes out and it creates the perfect ratio of bread to filling. The kids slathered their slices in homemade apple butter a friend gave us for Christmas but even plain this stuff is heavenly!

Add the eggs, butter & bananas into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients. Try to follow order of the ingredients listed above so that liquid ingredients are placed in the bread pan first and the dry ingredients second. Be aware that the bread pan should be removed from the bread machine before you start to add any ingredients. This helps to avoid spilling any material inside the bread machine. The bread machine should always be unplugged when removing the bread pan.

iv tried this recipe twice and so far im loving it. infavt the second time i did it i doubled the amount yo get a bigger loaf. But i have to warn you if your bread mechine does not have a bake only function itz definitely a risk. my quick bread cycle was 2hrs 10min long.i had to add additional 20min bake time to it as the inside was still underbaked. Must must use extremely ripe bananas and iv noticed significant difference in the taste from the 2 loafs i did because of the banana. i live in a south east asia so we have so many types of banana and they all taste different. so getting the right banana does make a difference in the taste. but overall its a very very easy and tasty banana bread.! highly recommend.!
Thank you for the recipe! I made the bread using bread flour in my cuisinart cbk-110. I followed the recipe as is except omitted walnuts. I also used ripe bananas. I feel that I could have used another banana or banana flavored syrup to give it more flavoring. Also, definitely going to double up on the chocolate chips. On the machine, instead of rapid cycle, I used “cake” program which goes just at 1hr 52 mins. I had to add another 30 mins. Cooled it on wire rack for 2 hours and it was still pretty warm on the inside. Made few slices of half of the loaf and 3 hours later, sliced the rest of the loaf. It wasn’t dry at all. If I double up on chocolate chips and add extra banana, do I need to make any changes to the recipe?
Can you remember waking up to the smell of cinnamon bread, hot from the oven? Memories like that are what keep people’s hearts full. You can fill your home with the sweet smell of cinnamon, too. These recipes are easy to use with your bread machine and will have you baking sweet cinnamon bread just like you remember. A wonderful way to start the day, homemade cinnamon bread is great for breakfast or snacks, sandwiches or as a light snack.
All bread machines are different, so it's very important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the model you own in order to ensure success. Also, make sure the bread machine is ready to go before you start mixing. Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined in the pan, it needs to be mixed and baked right away. Many have a setting for quick bread, or some people use their machine's rapid bread program or manual settings. At the end of the cycle, you can always use a toothpick to check the doneness of your bread and bake it a little longer if it's not thoroughly baked.

I used this recipe in the oven and not the bread machine and it turned out great. I mixed the bananas, egg, oil together, then added the sugar and baking soda/powder (mix very well to get slightly fluffy). (I usually use more than the suggested # of bananas, by at least 1/2 extra banana) Then added all that to a larger bowl with the flour and some cinnamon. Baked for 40ish minutes at 350-375 (depending on your oven). Took it out when the toothpick came out clean. I also added blueberries to the mix. Very tasty. Light and Fluffy.
