This bread takes about three hours to make and about  hour of hands-on work.

Ingredients

    * 1/3 cup lukewarm water
    *  teaspoon sugar
    * 2 packets (4 1/2 teaspoons)active dry yeast
    * 3 tablespoons butter
    * 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
    * 2 teaspoons salt
    * 2 cups hot water or buttermilk
    * 4 cups white flour
    * 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    * 1 cups raisins

Procedure

   1. Mix together 1/3 cup lukewarm water,  teaspoon sugar, and the active dry yeast 
and let stand.
   2. Combine butter, brown sugar, salt, and hot water or buttermilk in a large mixing 
bowl. When yeast mixture becomes frothy and increases in volume, add it to the mixing 
bowl.
   3. Mix the cinnamon with 2 cups of the flour, then add the mixture to the bowl. Stir 
at low speed with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Mix at medium speed for 3 minutes, 
scraping the sides of the bowl frequently.
   4. Flour the raisins lightly and add them to the mixture.
   5. Mix additional flour with a spoon,  to  cup at a time, until the dough begins 
to pull away from the sides of the bowl or it becomes difficult to add more flour. 
Baker's discretion.
   6. Cover with plastic wrap and a towel. Place in a warm place with no drafts until 
the batter doubles in volume, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
   7. Stir down with a spoon (about 25 strokes).
   8. Divide into 2 loaf pans. Wet your fingers and push the dough into the corners and 
smooth out.
   9. Cover with plastic. Place in a warm place and let the dough rise until it just 
reaches the tops of the pans (about 25 minutes). Watch carefully and don't let the 
dough rise too high (punch it down and let it rise again if it does).
  10. Bake at 375F (190C) for 30 to 45 minutes. The bread is done when it sounds 
hollow when tapped on the bottom of the pan and is browned to the baker's preference.
  11. Turn out on a wire rack and let cool.
