Cinnamon Raisin Dutch Oven No Knead Bread
This Cinnamon Raisin Dutch Oven No Knead Bread is the perfect combo of sweet and savory.
Most No Knead bread recipes want a long rest time, on average 13 hours. With this recipe, we aimed to provide the same results with less time. By increasing the yeast to a full packet of 2.25 teaspoons versus the average 0.5 teaspoon, we are able to get a faster rise but still get the airy texture and perfect golden crust for this Cinnamon Raisin bread.
Even though it is called Cinnamon Raisin Dutch Oven No Knead Bread, we found that by adding a little Ground Ginger and Ground Cloves help compliment the strong Cinnamon flavor. We also added some Brown Sugar, this helps feed the yeast (so we get more rise!) and adds sweetness to fully round out this bread. Whereas most other recipes opt for nothing but Cinnamon and Raisins added to their dough.
We also found that using all Almond Milk versus a 50/50 Milk/Water ratio or all Water, we were able to get a chewier texture and a softer flavor. Although any type of Milk will work, we opted for Almond Milk to help cut some calories and to keep this a dairy free recipe.
Our go to is some honey butter on top and cup of coffee for one delicious breakfast!
