Cookie Butter Raisin Loaf

Labels: { , }

© 2020 |

This sweet yeast bread roll is flavourful, super moist, and so delicious. The cookie butter raisin filling give the bread a decadent depth of flavour and taste.There are many different types of cookie butters. The one I am using for this recipe has a mix of holiday spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger) and tastes just like speculoos cookie spread. I use smooth one, but crunchy would work too!

  • 20 g Fresh yeast, crumbled
  • 50 g Coconut sugar
  • 250 ml Full fat milk, luke warm
  • 500 g Plain flour (German #550)
  • 1/2 tsp Black salt (or regular)
  • 80 g Beef dripping (or butter, softened)
  • 2 Eggs, medium, room-temperature
  • 125 g Raisins
  • 150 g Cookie butter
  1. Crumble the fresh yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer fixed with a dough hook. Add in coconut sugar and lukewarm milk. Stir together and set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in flour, salt, beef dripping or butter, and one egg. Mix for 5 minutes until the dough is elastic and smooth. Add in raisins and knead briefly.
  3. Place dough in a large bowl and loosely cover with plastic wrap or a clean tea towel. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.
  4. Grease and line a 30cm loaf pan with parchment paper.
  5. Gently punch dough down. Knead until smooth. Roll dough into a 24cm x 30cm rectangle. Spread the cookie butter over dough. Starting from the short end closest to you, roll up like a Swiss roll. Place in the prepared pan.
  6. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes or until dough has almost doubled in size. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C/400F.
  7. Use a knife to score the loaf and brush the top with egg. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Turn bread, top side up, onto a wire rack to cool. Serve at room temperature. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

This raising bread looks divine, Angie! Do you buy your cookie butter or make it from scratch? I haven't looked for it at our grocery store, but I'll see what options I have.

Mae Travels 24/7/20 20:22

Beef drippings seem a very unusual ingredient in such a sweet yeast bread. I've never seen this choice in a similar recipe. It's clever to use cookie butter this way.

be well... mae at

Makes me want to try cookie butter spread. I see them in the stores but never thought of trying it.

Angie's Recipes 28/7/20 10:26

@Marissa For the bread, I used the storebought one, but it's really easy to make your own. Get some cookies, spices and butter/coconut fat and you will have the cookie butter in a cinch. Here is the one I really enjoy from the seriouseat :-)

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 28/7/20 16:38

This looks bakery shop quality! And who doesn't love cookie butter? What an interesting combination.
