Savor the sweet taste and smell of this sweet loaf on September 16th for National Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Day. Also sometimes called The Bread Of Iron due to its high level of iron thanks to the raisins. 

The sun-dried fruits were created as far back as 1490 BCE while cinnamon-raisin bread grew out of the traditions of other fruit breads like the German Stollen, Italian Panettone, and Russian Kulich. The modern version we celebrate today was perfected and made popular in England during the Elizabethan era.

It was rumored that Henry David Thoreau had in fact been the original creator of the bread, but this falsehood was soon put to rest by Walter Harding, a biographer, who pointed to the Elizabethan plum cake as the true original. 

Whether you buy a loaf from your local bakery or grocery store or try your hand at baking up your own, be sure to have some of this sweet and nutritious fruit bread for National Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Day on September 16th.
