Swirled Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Ingredients
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
2 eggs
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.
