Ingredients

    Bread:
    1/2 c butter, softened
    1/2 c sugar
    1 packet active dry yeast
    1/4 c warm water (not above 110 degrees)
    4 eggs
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1 c warm skim milk
    4 c flour
    1 c raisins

    Topping:
    1/2 c brown sugar
    1/4 c flour
    1/4 c butter (at room temp)
    1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

    1/4 c powdered sugar for dusting

Directions

In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Set aside.
Dissolve yeast in water. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, salt and cinnamon until thick and smooth.
Combine the butter/sugar mixture with the egg mixture. Don't over-mix. Appearance may be slightly curdled.
Add the yeast mixture and then the milk.
Slowly stir in the flour.
Add raisins and vigorously mix until a smooth, sticky, wet dough is achieved.
Cover and let rise for an hour (until doubled in size.)
Give the dough a stir (scraping down sides of bowl) and let rise again for an hour or more (until doubled in size.)

Meanwhile, make the cinnamon-sugar topping. Blend brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon with a fork until crumbly. Set aside. Note: This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated.

Coat a bundt or tube pan with butter or cooking spray. Sprinkle topping mixture evenly into the pan. Carefully spread the dough mixture over the topping.

Bake at 350 for 40-50 min. until a toothpick comes out clean. Carefully remove from pan and allow cake to cool for 15-20 mintues on a wire rack. Top off with a light dusting of powdered sugar before serving.
