Ingredients

US|METRIC
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour (I used unbleached; no need to sift)
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast (I used SAF Gold Instant Yeast; this stuff works really well in rich doughs. Keep in mind, instant yeast does not require proofing and in many instances can be mixed right in with other ingredients. I'm a total instant yeast convert; I rarely use active-dry yeast anymore.)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt (If you'd like to use kosher, add a pinch extra.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter (unsalted)
  • 1 egg (large)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (I used Penzey's brand Vietnamese--very intense flavor.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins (moist, I soaked mine in warm water for about 20 minutes; drained them & gently squeezed out excess water with a paper towel.)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (I used Trader Joe's brand--it's inexpensive, not too thick, and tastes good; you can use honey instead, if you prefer.)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 cups sugar (confectioners', no need to sift)
  • 4 tablespoons milk (or half and half)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 drop almond extract
