Raisin English Muffin Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. + cooling


1 loaf (12 slices)

Batter breads like this are great to make because they don't require kneading. I slice the loaf and store it in the freezer for a quick breakfast.


  • Yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-1/2 to 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Grease an 8x4-in. loaf pan; sprinkle with cornmeal and set aside. Place warm milk in a small bowl; add raisins and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon, reserved milk mixture and 1-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead.
  3. Spoon into prepared pan; sprinkle with cornmeal. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 28-33 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve slices of bread toasted.
