Glazed Cinnamon Raisin Cobblestone Bread

This yum filled recipe consists of sweet yeast bread, which is chopped into small chunks that stand for amazing cobblestone effect and addition of optional sweet glaze is must to raise the yumminess!



  • Warm whole milk ((110° to 115°F)) – ½ cup
  • White sugar – ¼ cup
  • Instant yeast – 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Egg – 1 large
  • Egg yolk – 1 (at room temperature)
  • Bread flour – 2 ¼ cups
  • Salt – ½ teaspoons
  • Unsalted butter – ½ cup (very soft, but not melted)


  • Large egg – 1 (lightly beaten)
  • Ground cinnamon – 2 teaspoons
  • Light brown sugar – ½ cup (firmly packed)
  • Raisins – ½ cup

Glaze: (optional)

  • Icing/confectioners’ sugar – 1 cup
  • Milk – 2-3 tablespoons
  • Vanilla – ¼ teaspoons


  1. To make the dough: Take warm milk and sugar and combine them in a large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer, after that drizzle up some yeast on it, blend it well by stirring. Give a rest of 5 to 10 minutes to the mixture, let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes, until the whole yeast gets activated and starts to become foamy or bubbly. After that mix egg and yolk, and whisk them by using hands, blend it well. Stream a flour and salt by using a spatula.
  2. Connect the hook of dough and knead for 2 minutes on low speed. The dough might look quite ragged at a particular point. You can increase the speed and knead for an extra minute. While the mixer is still running, pour the soft butter, carefully add one tablespoon at a single time, which allows each addition to get blended in before you add on the next. Once complete butter has been added and blended, slow down the speed and keep kneading for extra 5 to 6 minutes, to the point your dough starts looking tender, smooth and silky.
  3. Take out the dough and keep it in a lightly buttered or oil brushed bowl. Get a little amount of butter or oil and gently brush it up on the surface of the dough. Wrap it up with a plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise or let it get doubled up about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Flip the dough onto a work surface which is floured. Press it gently to discard any air. Drizzle up some flour and spread onto a 12 by 15-inch rectangle. While keeping the dough make sure that one of the long sides is parallel to you, arrange and place the dough in such a particular position.
  5. Get beaten egg and brush the dough lightly and consistently with it, leave a 1-inch border and keep the long edge of the dough opposite to you. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon in the small bowl. After that, gently stream this mixture upon the egg glaze, you can spread it out simply by using your fingers into an even layer. Pour the raisins over the top of it evenly.
  6. Start with the longest edge close to you, make a tight roll by rolling the dough and pinch the seam to close. Make sure the seam should be facing upward while rolling the dough, roll the dough in such a manner. Use a sharp knife to slice the roll in half lengthwise and chop it crosswise into 12 even chunks. Take a 9×5 loaf pan and lightly butter it and shift the pieces to the pan. Try to keep the bottom layer of dough into side down position, so that it will be easier to take out the bread from the pan after the baking is done and it will also prevent the sugar from totally burning out, which is on the bottom of the pan. Otherwise, simply toss them. Even out the top portion as much as you can; even if you get a rugged look, it’s fine and beautiful.
  7. Take a greased plastic wrap and wrap the pan very gently with it, let the dough get rise for 1 – 1 1/2 hours, at least to the point it reaches 1/4-inch below the rim of the pan.
  8. Make the oven ready by preheating it at 350°F, bake the loaf for 35 to 45 minutes in the center of the oven along with the rack, an instant-read thermometer should register 190°F when inserted in the center and should come out clean. Shift it to a rack and give it some rest to get cool in the pan, for 15 minutes. Afterwards, take a piece of parchment paper and upturn a loaf onto it, and once again let it get cool completely.
  9. Make a glaze by blending all the glaze ingredients until they get smooth. Pour over cooled loaf.

  3. Take a bowl of a stand mixer and pour the yeast into it and stream the salt, eggs, flour, and raisins.
  4. Stir it by using the dough hook or wooden spoon of the mixer until it becomes properly combined.

  6. Take some plastic wrap and cover the dough bowl and allow the dough to rise, at least for some hours, until it gets doubled in size.
  7. Lightly flour your countertop and roll out the dough into a rectangle shape, the length of your loaf pan. It doesn't have to be perfect.
  8. Stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, salt, and prepare the cinnamon filling.
  9. Roll out this mixture on the top of the dough rectangle, all over it, roll out the dough in a cinnamon roll shape, and stitch the seam.

Wrap the bottom of the sheet pan by adding some boiling water; afterwards, keep baking the bread on the shelf above the water until the inner part registers 190 to 200 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, at least for 40-50 minutes.
  13. Before slicing it, allow the bread to get cool wholly on a wire rack. Enjoy!
