Homemade Cinnamon Raison Bread!
This bread will have your house smelling amazing, is easy to make and is SO delicious! My favorite is making french toast with it the next day, and my kids love having it warm right out of the oven with butter. It also freezes really well, which is always a bonus!

-1 cup of oat milk
-1/3 cup unsalted butter (melted)

-In a small bowl combine 3/4 cup of oat milk with the active dry yeast. Let sit for 8-10 minutes.
-In a large bowl with a stand mixer combine the butter, 1 egg, sugar, sour cream and 1/4 cup of oat milk. Mix until combined.

-Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the stand mixer and mix on low/medium with the whisk attachment for 1-2 minutes.

-In a small bowl crack the last egg and mix. Brush the top of the dough with the egg wash.
