This bread is an ode to my dad and the cinnamon raisin bread bars he’d toast for his breakfast every morning when I was a kid (not for me – I turned my nose up at anything with mushy cooked raisins in it). Mornings are my dad’s jam. For me, they’re the absolute worst.
But having a loaf of this cinnamon raisin seed and nut bread on hand makes them significantly more bearable. Especially when your baby seems to have inherited some of her grandpa’s AM enthusiasm (the happy part, thankfully – not the early part…yet.).
