(29) Cinnamon Raisin Bread for the Bread Machine

Ok, so my husband and my sister/future brother-in-law were all so gaga over the white bread, they put in a request for cinnamon raisin bread. I made this recipe last night. Very easy. I didn't get to taste the bread until the morning. I'll be honest here - even though the reviews on recipezaar LOVED this bread, I didn't. It has potential, but I need to tweak it some.

For one thing, it needs way more cinnamon!! I also think some brown sugar would be good. I soaked the raisins in hot water so they'd puff up, but I wonder if I could soake them in juice (Or booze LOL) to give them an even better flavor?!

Do you have a cinnamon raisin bread recipe that you love? If you do, please share it with me!!
