Italian Raisin Bread Recipe (Raisin Pane)

I don't agree with the name the Italians give for this insanely delicious raisin bread recipe! Image: Italian Raisin BreadIt is not a pane, especially when you use your bread making machine! Lol.

Imagine the delightful aroma of cinnamon and raisins wafting through the entire house as a loaf of this homemade bread is baking. The wholesome flavor and chewy texture of this bread (especially when toasted) is incomparable to any store bought raisin bread. It's one of my favorite Italian Bread Recipes.

Make sure you keep all your windows closed or you will have every neighbour and their dog at your doorstep. The smell alone of this raisin bread baking makes you think you have died and gone to heaven. And, you haven't even tasted it yet!

Raisin bread is a healthy treat to wake up to in the morning and it is easy and as quick as your bread maker can make it!
