My wife and I love cinnamon. Perhaps there's a distinctive taste in cinnamon that captures the attention of our taste buds. Though cinnamon is our favorite, its ironic that we seldom use it in the kitchen. I remember I've only used it once when I tried to make kamote que (fried sweet potato with sugar) with cinnamon. Maybe next time I’ll try to add it on bake goodies like in banana bread or in cookies.
Cinnamon bread reminds me of so many memories during my high school life. I remember my first encounter with it on our school canteen. When I first tried it, it became my favorite and in fact, this is my day-to-day snack way back then.
Today, I'm going to share to you my cinnamon bread recipe. I modified the original recipe then I added some raisins. I’m anticipating that my kid will not like the bread with cinnamon alone. After it was baked, I knew she would locate all the hidden raisins inside the bread slices. But to my surprise, she did eat a lot of bread that day. I guess our love for cinnamon will be pass down to her. Anyway, here’s my cinnamon raisin bread recipe. Tell me what you think…
