Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread with Raisins

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread with Raisins

This pull apart bread has been done now over and over again but I’ve never really tried it.

Until now.

I thought it was time. So I started my research, as I usually do before I embark on any project. Of course the internet is full of pull apart bread recipes, so the secret was finding one that would work for me and changing it up so that it is easy enough for anyone to follow. So I came up with a cinnamon brown sugar pull apart bread with raisins.

When I was reading about this recipe, the number 1 issue people were having is the dough not rising properly. This is always due to the yeast, either the yeast is old or you have not activated the yeast. I always activate my yeast in warm water before using it. The other step I always follow is mix all my wet ingredients together and all my dry ingredients together. So the rest is very simple, pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix. You cannot go wrong if you follow these simple steps.
