English Toasting Bread with Cinnamon, Apples & Raisin!


I LOVE English Toasting Bread ! This bread is really an English Muffin in a loaf that you slice and toast. SCRUMPTIOUS anyway you slice it! Ive decided to try creating one with the added joy of apples, cinnamon, & raisins as an added challenge to my baking. I also added ground flax for texture and flavor! I hope you give this loaf a try as it is very easy to mix up and is a wonderful change for your breakfast!

2 & 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 cup Milled Flax
1 Heaping TBS Sugar
1 Package Yeast 
1/4 TSP Baking Powder

1 & 1/2 TSP Salt 

1 Cup Plain Yogurt 
1/2 cup Apple Cider or Apple Juice or Water ( I used Cider)
2 TBS Vegetable Oil
Ground Flax & Cinnamon to sprinkle over the prepared pan & bread
1 Apple peeled & chopped
3/4 Cup Raisins
2 TBS Brown Sugar
1 TSP Cinnamon
Mix flour, flax, sugar, salt, baking powder & yeast together in a deep bowl. Warm the yogurt & cider or whichever liquid you are using to lukewarm temp. Stir into all the dry & beat in high speed with a mixer for about 1 minute. Now stir the chopped apple, brown sugar, cinnamon & raisins together and then fold them into your bread dough. In a large bread pan spray or grease the pan the sprinkle bottom & sides with ground flax. Add the dough to the pan & smooth dough out to fit the pan. Sprinkle with more flax & some cinnamon. Cover & let rise about 1 hour & 15 minutes or until the dough just comes up over the edge of your pan. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove the towel you covered and bake in the oven for 25 to 35 minutes. Bread should be high & slightly hollow sounding when tapped. I tested with a cake tester & removed bread when tester came out clean. 
Let bread cool in the pan 5 minutes before dumping out! Bread will slide right out. Let bread cool completely before slicing!
 This bread is designed to be eaten after toasting your slice. All the nooks & crannies of an English Muffin within the convenience of a loaf! DELICIOUS toasted & spread with butter & you could sprinkle cinnamon & sugar over the butter, use jam or cream cheese ! English Toasting Bread it is OH SO GOOD!
