1 Ounce of Dry Milk
2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten
1 Ounce Unsalted Butter, softened
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 tsp. Bread Machine Yeast
1 Cup Raisins


  1. Ensure the bread machine paddles are both pointing in the same direction.
  2. Add the water, honey and whole wheat flour.
  3. Make a small well in the middle of the flour, for the yeast to add later.
  4. Then add the sugar, but try to distribute it around the edges. Do the same when adding the dry milk and salt
  5. Add the vital wheat gluten, try putting it on the 4 corners.
  6. Add the softened butter in small bits around the edges.
  7. Add the ground cinnamon somewhere on an edge.
  8. Add the yeast to the small well made earlier.
  9. Set the Course setting to 2 for Whole Wheat bread, select your crust level, and start the bread machine.
  10. About 48 – 58 minutes in, depending on your crust selection. The bread machine will beep. Remove the dough and hand knead in the cup of raisins.
  11. Place the dough back into the bread machine and close it to continue the process.
  12. Allow the bread maker to complete its process.
  13. Place the bread on a cooling rack for 1 hour.
  14. Bag the bread and put it into a cool dark area, like a bread box. Let it set there overnight to get a little firm.
  15. The next day slice the bread.
  16. Enjoy!
