Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Cinnamon, Lemon & Raisin Sour Dough.

I’ve had the challenge of making a sweeter version of my sour dough cob on my to do list for ages.  I wanted to make something along the lines of a fruit loaf so I’ve added in some cinnamon, lemon zest and raisins.

This loaf makes a delicious breakfast when it is sliced thickly, toasted and topped with lots of raspberry jam.
