This milk-enriched fruity loaf tastes good plain or can be served spread with a little honey or jam. It's also wonderful toasted for breakfast, when the gentle aroma of warm cinnamon makes a soothing start to the day.
Made it healthier. I used a breadmaker to help me along...I upped the wholemeal flour to 3 cups, added a tsp and a half of gr nutmeg as well as an extra 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, halved the sugar and used brown sugar (as I didn't have any caster!), I completely omitted the margarine and used a tsp each of honey and olive oil instead, I used skim milk as my milk and also added a sprinkling of non fat milk powder (just in case??)...unbelievably it came out beautifully - really soft in the centre and perfectly spiced. I've tried a few healthy versions of cinnamon raisin bread and this is the best so far so I'm definitely going to make it again! Thanks - 04 Feb 2009
