Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Tried this last night and it was absolutely amazing!!!!

                                               This is not my picture, but it looked just like this.

2 cups flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (or see substitute at the bottom)
1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup raisins
Additional cinnamon and sugar

In a large bowl, combine first 7 ingredients; set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk and oil. Add to dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Stir in raisins.
Pour half the batter into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Pour the rest of the batter on top and spread with a spatula to cover the cinnamon and sugar. Using a table knife, swirl through both layers of batter to create the swirl affect.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until dark golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before removing from pan.
Serve warm, with butter if desired.

-I don't normally have buttermilk on hand, so I just make my own: place 1 tablespoon vinegar in a 2 cup measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup. Stir and let stand at least 5 minutes before using. It's easy and works great!!!!
