Sweet Dry Grapes Bread with Cinnamon #BreadBakers

sweet dry grapes bread with cinnamonSecond month to be participating with this fabulous group and I love it, it is amazing how versatile and simple it is to bake and create different types of bread and share with you all my experience and the mistakes too.
This month we make breads with grapes in any shape and form, like raisins, because you know the dry grapes are raisins, and thats what I use in my recipe, delicious sweet and dry grapes.
It is a very crunchy and soft bread with hints of cinnamon and of course lots and lots of pieces of dry grapes.
Perfect for this fall weather, help you keep you warm in the afternoons, anyway, is just what you need at any hour, any day, for whatever you want to eat it.
