Bread #3 - Cinnamon Raisin Bread

So far I'm loving this project although it does take some planning to figure out when to make the bread if it needs to rise once or twice. 

This bread was by far my favorite bread so far - it's fluffy but not heavy, sweet but not too sweet, and I love the raisins. The bread can be made into runny egg sandwiches, or eaten as snack/dessert, I also think it would be good as grilled cheese although I have not done that yet. 
 I used this recipe almost exactly, except I only needed 6 1/2 cups of flour and then it seemed to be enough and I used only about 1/2 the sugar/cinnamon mixture. It still made three loaves two of which I wrapped in saran wrap and froze for later.  If I made it again I would absolutely have rolled the dough spiral tighter so the air bubble created was smaller but this does not impact the taste as much as cutting it, and appearance.  I also probably would have added in some cranberries or more raisins.
