October is Martin’s Swirl Breads Month
Up this week: Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread!*
This week marks the second edition of our unofficial Martin’s Swirl Breads Month! Last week, we featured the sweet, nostalgic flavor of Martin’s Cinnamon Sugar Swirl Potato Bread and seven delicious recipes made with it. This week, we’re talking about the more subtly sweet Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread!*
About Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread
For delightfully sweet cinnamon and raisins swirled with the old-fashioned rustic taste of butter bread, choose Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread!* This bright, eye-catching package contains all the flavor of cinnamon and the classic taste of high-quality white bread in one loaf.
As with our original Old-Fashioned Real Butter Bread (and all of Martin’s bread and rolls), this swirl bread is made with high-quality ingredients such as real milk, high-protein wheat flour, and real butter. So, it’s a swirl bread that you can actually feel good about enjoying and serving to those you love. Because of its more classic and less-sweet taste, this loaf is especially delicious when paired with savory and salty ingredients!
*Note: Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread has been discontinued. We recommend substituting this product with Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Potato Bread, or with one of our other Swirl Bread products.
This week we’re starting things off on a sweet note with a delectable stuffed French toast recipe. Sweet cream cheese filling featuring a handful of raisins pairs perfectly with French-toasted Cinnamon-Raisin Butter Bread.
Pro tip: This recipe was originally created with Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Potato Bread, but swapping it out with the butter bread variation results in a buttery and not-too-sweet version!

- 3 Eggs
