National Raisin Bread Month - November
National Raisin Bread Month – November


National Raisin Bread Month is an annual designation observed in November. Alright, here’s the thing. Even if you’re not a big raisin fan, you HAVE to admit that raisin bread is next-level delicious. Pop a slice in the toaster, and spread some butter over the top when it’s done… Viola! You have a masterpiece just waiting to be enjoyed. Most of the time, raisin bread also has cinnamon swirls in the toast (as if we needed something to make it more craveable) so it’s often eaten at breakfast, lunch, and even for dessert. Also, it’s got a nostalgic effect on us. The smell alone brings back Saturday mornings watching cartoons on the couch with some raisin bread and a glass of milk, or time spent at grandma’s enjoying it homemade. But if you try to tell us you’ve outgrown it, we probably won’t believe you.
