4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 pkg dry yeast
1/3 cup less 1 tbsp Splenda granular
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
1/3 cup + 3 tbsp butter, divided
1 tsp salt
nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup Splenda granular
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins
Combine 2 cups flour, yeast, and 1 1/4 teaspoons of the sugar in a large bowl; set aside.
Combine milk, the 1/3 cup butter, and salt in a small saucepan; heat until the mixture reaches 120 to 130 degrees. Add liquid mixture to the flour mixture. Add eggs and beat at low-speed of electric mixer for 1/2 minute. Increase speed to high; beat 3 minutes. Gradually add remaining 2 cups flour, stirring to make a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes. Shape dough into a ball and place in a bowl that has been sprayed with the cooking spray. Turn to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, for about an hour or until doubled in size. Punch dough down then divide in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Roll one half of dough to a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter over low heat; brush half of melted butter over shaped dough. Combine cinnamon and 2 teaspoons Splenda, stirring to blend; sprinkle half over shaped dough. Sprinkle with half the raisins. Roll up jellyroll fashion, beginning at long side; press edges and ends together securely. Cut into 12 slices. Arrange slices in a 9-inch round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Repeat process with remaining dough, melted butter, Splenda mixture and raisins. Cover and let rise in a warm place 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly, remove from pans, and serve warm.
