Dutch Oven Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Updated: May 2, 2020

This recipe is based on a Buzzfeed Tasty recipe.


3.5 cups bread flour

¾ cup raisins

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups warm water

1 packet yeast

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Extra flour for dusting


1. In a large bowl, combine the bread flour, raisins, and salt. Mix well.

2. In a separate large bowl, combine the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Pour the flour mixture on top of the water and use a silicone spatula to stir until the dough comes together.

3. With the spatula, fold the dough around the edges of the bowl toward the center, rotating the bowl each time and folding a total of 8 times. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest in a warm place for 60 minutes, or until almost double in size.

4. Add the Dutch oven and lid to the oven and preheat to 450F for 30 minutes.

5. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the surface of the risen dough. Using the spatula, fold the dough toward the center again 8 more times to hide the cinnamon in the center of the dough. Cover with the towel and let rest for 30 minutes.

6. Lightly flour a clean work surface and your hands. Place the dough on the floured surface and dust the top with extra flour. Form the dough into a round mound and transfer to a piece of parchment paper.

7. Cut a cross into the top of the dough about ½ inch deep.

8. Carefully remove the Dutch oven from the oven and use the parchment to lift the bread into the pot. Cover with the lid and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the lid and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the bread is golden brown.

9. Carefully slide the bread out of the pot and onto a wire rack. Remove the parchment paper and let the bread cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
