Raisin and Aniseed bread is a type of bread made with raisins and flavored with cinnamon.

It is “usually a white flour or egg dough bread”. Aside from white flour, raisin bread is also made with other flours, such as all-purpose flour, oat flour, or whole wheat flour. Some recipes include honey, brown sugar, eggs, or butter.
