This post has been inspired by another blogger. I have made a few changes in the recipe, however the credit should be given to:

"Crazy life with my 3 Boy's"

Please check out the original recipe here:

This recipe is delicious in its original form. I tried it and loved it. My family however love raisins in mostly anything baked. So I had to try adding those into this recipe. I only had enough to do one loaf though so I cut the ingredients in half and added raisins. Then because my hubby likes extra sweetness I swapped the white sugar in the cinnamon and sugar mixture for brown sugar. I also had to add in baking powder as our flour here does not work well without it. 


For the batter:

1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 cup of milk (1 tablespoon of lemon mixed in)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup raisins

For the cinnamon/sugar mixture:

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Cream together butter, eggs, and sugar. 

Add milk, flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Add in raisins. 

Mix well. 

Pour half the mixture in a loaf pan.

In a separate bowl mix together the cinnamon and sugar. 

Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the batter.

Pour in the remaining batter.
Sprinkle remaining cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes or until inserted toothpick 

comes out clean. 

Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing.

A big thank you to "Crazy life with my 3 Boy's" for the wonderful and delicious recipe.
