                         Makes 2 loaves
    6      cups          all-purpose flour -- to 6 1/2 c.
      1/3  cup           sugar
    4 1/2  tsp           FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
    1 1/2  teaspoons     salt
    1      cup           milk
      1/2  cup           water
      1/3  cup           butter or margarine -- cut into pieces
    2                    eggs
    3      tablespoons   butter or margarine -- melted
      1/4  cup           sugar
    2      teaspoons     Ground Cinnamon
      1/2  cup           raisins
    1                    egg white -- lightly beaten
                         Crumb Topping -- recipe follows
 
 In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 1/3 cup sugar, undissolved yeast,and
 salt. Heat milk, water, and 1/3 cup butter until 
 very warm (120° to 130°F); stir into dry ingredients. Stir in eggs and
 enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on 
 lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.
 Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.                
 To fill and shape loaves: Divide dough in half. Roll each half to
 16-x7-inch rectangle. Brush each rectangle with 3 tablespoons
 melted butter to within 1 inch of edges. Combine 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon,
 and raisins; sprinkle evenly over dough. Beginning at 
 short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly as for jelly roll; pinch
 seams and ends to seal. Place, seam sides down, in 2 greased 
 9- x 5-inch loaf pans.Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled, about
 30 to 45 minutes. Brush loaves with egg white; sprinkle with 
 Crumb Topping. Bake at 375°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until done. Remove
 from pans; let cool on wire racks.
 
 Crumb Topping: In small bowl, combine 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup
 firmly packed light brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon. 
 Cut in 3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine until mixture resembles
 coarse crumbs.
