My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Cinnamon Raisin Wheat Bread

This is worth baking just for the scent of cinnamon filling your kitchen. This is a good one for the kids to help make. No electric mixer needed.

The slices may be spread with honey, marmalade, cream cheese or honey butter. Serve this with a bowl of warm oatmeal or fluffy scrambled eggs.

The bread is mixed in one bowl and takes only a few minutes to prepare.

Cinnamon Raisin Wheat Bread
1 9x5-inch loaf

1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups wheat flour (or 1 cup white and 1 cup wheat)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup raisins

Mix buttermilk and egg together. Stir in brown sugar. Sift dry ingredients and stir into egg and buttermilk mixture. Blend in raisins. This can all be stirred with a spoon or fork. Place the dough in a greased 9-5-inch bread pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes.


  1. If I leave out the raisins this could be tasty. I need a recipe so I don't have to kick the shelf at the grocery store when I get to the bread section and see that they don't have my cinnamon bread again. Seriously, it's a standard item so why can't they just have it? Thanks for sharing.

  2. parentingBydummies, speak to your store manager. They need to know the breadman is not doing his job. It is either a very popular item or he/she is not leaving enough. Speak up. I have a Cinnamon (no raisins) Bread recipe i'll post in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.
