Easiest Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Our local steakhouse makes the most amazing bread. After shamefully asking for seconds for the nth time, I decided to take matters into my own hands, for ~10 minutes.

Yes this bread takes no more than 10 minutes of active time on your part. Just mix the ingredients and leave it overnight. Form the dough the next morning & bake in a 4qt dutch oven, and you have fresh bread!


3 cup flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp yeast
1 cup raisin
1.5 cup water


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, salt, yeast together. Add raisin and water, stir & form a dough (this is easier with a wooden spoon, but a spatula will do). Leave the dough in the bowl; cover with clear wrap and top with a lid (optional, prevents drying out if wrap isn't sealed tight). Leave it overnight. In the morning, scrape down the dough and kneed for 1~2 minute; grease & dust with flour as needed to make dough less sticky. Cover and let it rest while oven preheats.

Preheat oven to 480 F with a greased dutch oven in it. Place the dough inside the heated & greased dutch oven. Bake for 30 minutes with lid on, then remove the lid and bake for another 10 minutes.
