Raisin Bread French Toast

We decided to have homemade raisin bread french toast for our Christmas morning breakfast. We have a great recipe for the bread machine so we made that the night before.

Raisin Bread - For the Bread Machine
   (Electric Bread)

This makes a small loaf which yields about 8 good size slices for french toast. One slice was enough for each of us.

3/4 cup water
2 cups bread flour
1 T dry milk
1 T sugar
1 tsp salt
1 T butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp fastrise yeast

Add 1/2 cups raisins when the bread machine is starting its second knead cycle. I soaked my raisins in boiling water for a few minutes to get them to plump up.

French Toast
  (Better Homes and Garden)
1 cup milk
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix together and soak bread 30 seconds on each side. Cook 2-3 minutes per side.

Always good to have your milk in a snowman mug


  1. That looks so good. The kids love cinnamon raisin bread but my husband has a strong aversion to raisins [i.e. we do not keep them in the house.] So I think your nice recipe has inspired me to make the bread, sans raisins, and then yummy french toast.

    Looks like the perfect Christmas breakfast. :) Thanks for the recipes.
