1.5cupsAlmond Milk (or any type of Milk or Water)(at ~115 degrees Fahrenheit) (12oz)
In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the 3 cups of All-Purpose Flour, 2.25 tsps of Instant Yeast, 2 tsps of Kosher Salt, 3 tbsps Brown Sugar, 3 tsps Ground Cinnamon, 1 tsp Ground Ginger, and 0.25 tsps Ground Cloves.
Heat the 1.5 cups of Almond Milk in the microwave. Usually takes my microwave about 1 minute to get the milk heated to about 115 degrees Fahrenheit, but make sure to check the temperature of the milk with a thermometer in 30 second intervals of microwaving the milk.
Add the heated Almond Milk to the Flour mixture and begin mixing, scraping down the sides as needed.
While the stand mixer is creating the dough, spray a large mixing bowl or glass bowl with oil and sprinkle with flour.
Add the 0.75 cups of Raisins once the dough has almost formed completely.
Once the dough has formed, scoop the dough into the mixing bowl coated in oil (to prevent sticking) and cover with plastic wrap.
Place the bowl in a warm place (I like to use the Proofing setting on my oven) and allow the dough to rise for at least 3 hours (or longer if you'd like!).
After the 3 hours, turn on your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and place your Dutch Oven (I use a 5qt sized Dutch Oven) inside to preheat with the oven.
While the oven is preheating, turn the dough out onto a floured surface. If it lost some of its shaped, simply fold the dough back together with an oiled spatula.
Transfer dough onto a piece of parchment paper and place back into the bowl you let it rise in.
Score the middle of the bread with a sharp knife in a X shape. You can also sprinkle the top with a little flour for a pretty effect.
Once the oven is heated, quickly remove the Dutch Oven (careful it is very hot!) and place the dough inside and with the Dutch Oven lid on and place in the oven.
Cook for 30 minutes covered and then for 10 minutes uncovered or until the top of the bread is a golden brown.
Once cooked, remove the bread from the Dutch Oven to a cutting board and allow to sit for 10 minutes before cutting into slices.
