Cinnamon-Raisin Beer-Batter Bread

Crunchy outside and moist and delicious on the inside.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 (12-oz.) light-bodied beer
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and raisins.  Add beer and mix until well combined.  Pour into loaf pan, spreading batter to corners.  Drizzle melted butter evenly over top of batter.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.  Cool bread in pan for 5 minutes and then remove to wire rack to cool.

Make glaze with 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Drizzle over top of bread.
