National Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day is a celebration of raisin and cinnamon bread, celebrated on September 16th. The recipe for making this bread is quite simple, but its taste has won over many people around the world.
According to historical data, in the 18th century in different European countries, various ingredients were added to the classic bread recipe. They made the taste more interesting and varied. For example, German bread with dried fruits and spices or Russian Easter cake (with various spices, raisins, nuts, and sugar powder).
The recipe for bread with cinnamon and raisins began to spread in England in the 1960s. A couple of years later, it appeared in the United States, where it gained great popularity. The name ‘iron bread’ has taken root behind this food item, which is due to the high iron content in one of the ingredients – raisins. If you add a little sugar to the recipe, you will get a good dessert.
Bread with raisins and cinnamon can be consumed on its own or with tea or coffee. But it will be much tastier to spread butter on the slices, and put a couple of spoons of berry jam on top. Peanut butter will also work.
