Whole Wheat Raisin Bread

Whole Wheat Raisin BreadHomemade whole wheat bread is one of the best things you can have at breakfast. The following bread recipe is loaded with raisins and with a hint of cinnamon. It tastes heavenly with fresh fruit jam. To get the best texture and fluffiness, give dough ample time to rise before transferring to the oven. One can also go for a multi-grain variant instead of using whole wheat flour. This bread can last for up to a week in an airtight container.
