Sourdough Cinnamon Raisin Bread

  • Author: Jessica Penner, RD


  • ¾ cup warm water
  • ½ tsp yeast
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp honey (or corn/maple/agave syrup to make it vegan)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 cup regular cooking oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½-1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the water.
  2. Then add the sugar, oil, sourdough starter, salt, cinnamon, oats, and whole wheat flour.
  3. Combine and add 1 cup all purpose flour. Keep adding small amounts of flour until the dough starts to pull away from the bowl. Add in the raisins.
  4. Knead for 8 minutes.
  5. Remove dough from bowl. Grease the bowl. Return the dough to the bowl and flip the dough around so that all sides are greased.
  6. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled (about 3 hours).
  7. Form into a loaf and place in a loaf pan or onto a baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place about 2 hours.
  8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Bake about 25 minutes or until crust is slightly brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
