Now that its cooling off, I'm back to baking bread on the weekends. This Sat. I made my Cinnamon Rasin Nut bread. I'm always looking for new recipies-anyone care to share?

Here is the above loaf! It is doable by hand or heavy duty mixer. If you have a lightweight mixer, do by hand. I burnt out the motors of 2 Kitchenaid mixers on this recipe! (I use the 600 series, and it works great)

3c Whole wheat flour
2-2 1/2c Bread flour
1 1/2 TBSP instant rise yeast
1/4c Dark Brown sugar
2tsp Salt
1TBSP Cinnamon
1/2c milled Flax
3TBSP butter
1 egg
2 Cups water (@120F-130F)
1 Cup Rasins (reconstituted if too dry)
1 cup walnuts or pecans

Mix all dry ingredients (only use 1c white flour) (except fruit and nuts) in a heavy duty stand mixer. Add Butter and hot water, mix well with paddle attachment. Add the egg. Switch to dough hook, add white flour slowly until the dough is smooth. Knead 10 min. adding white flour as needed. Keep the dough slightly dry (since you are adding fruit).

Mix in the fruit and nuts by hand.

Rise 90min. punch down, knead. Rise 1hr.

Put into 2 loaf pans (buttered and floured). Rise 1hr.

Bake at 375F for 40min
