  • cups (217.5g) raisins
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
  • cup (67g) brown sugar
  • cups (355g) hot water


  • In a large bowl, combine the raisins, cinnamon, flour, salt, yeast, and brown sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Add hot water (about 110°F) and stir until the dough forms a sticky batter. Place the dough in a bowl that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise until almost doubled in size (about 3 hours).
  • Line a 6-quart Dutch oven with parchment paper. Place it in the cold oven.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F, allowing the Dutch oven to heat up as well.
  • When ready, carefully remove the hot Dutch oven from the oven. Dump the dough ball into the preheated Dutch oven and cover tightly with the lid.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove the lid and bake 10 more minutes (or until the bread is golden brown).
  • Remove bread from the oven and let it cool before slicing and serving.
