Cinnamon Raisin bread

I am in need of a good Cinnamon Raisin bread recipe, I made this bread the other day, it came from a bread machine book, I used the machine to do the kneading then I put the dough in a bowl to double then I bread pans to raise again and then bake it, well to make the story short, my wife went with her girlfriend to a dog show, and I was home for the day. after I made the bread, I took a loaf over her girlfriends house and gave it to her husband, when my wife came home I told her of my excite ment making this bread, well we sat down and had a cup of coffee with this bread. and I thought it was OK, she said it was terrible, then I told her that I made a loaf for her girlfriend, she stated You Didn't..... well I am now looking for a recipe that is a little sweet I like alot of raisins and a loaf that I can taste the cinnamon too.

I make a raisin cinnamon swirl bread that's delicious.  Raisins in the dough, roll out the dough, brush with a little water, sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar, roll up, seal seams, into greased bread pans, rise, and bake.

I made was a HIT..but i suggest doing only 2/3 or one third(one loaf) as it overtook my stand mixer (I was waiting for steve mcqueen to run out of the movie theatre screaming..HA) is as good as this site!

It's the best cinnamon raisin bread recipe. I do make the entire recipe using my Kitchen Aid. It is a handful of dough for sure. I bake the three loaves and put 2 in the freezer right away or we would eat all three. Try it next.
