Cafe Style Raisin and Cranberry Bread

Posted 2017-05-07 by Naomi follow
Two simple techniques make this delicious cafe style raisin and cranberry bread. Rehydrating the fruit with a touch of cinnamon makes them burst with flavour. The melted butter on top of the dough makes a tasty top as it bakes. This is delicious served warm out of the oven with butter.
