Swirled Cinnamon Raisin Bread
2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1 cup sugar, divided
1/4 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons salt
6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup raisins
Additional canola oil
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1/2 cup sugar, oil, salt, eggs and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place or until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Knead 1/2 cup raisins into each; roll each portion into a 15×9-in. rectangle. Brush with additional oil. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle to within 1/2 in. of edges.
Tightly roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal. Place, seam side down, in two greased 9×5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°. Brush with oil. Bake 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
