Cinnamon raisin bread

can anyone tell me why I get large air pockets in cinnamon raisin bread.

I had the same problem. The holes were near the top of the loaf. It looked like air was trapped there for some reason.

I fixed the problem by slashing each loaf three times just before baking. Problem solved.

Hope this helps.
