Dissolve yeast in warm milk that has been scalded. Add 1 1/2c flour, mix until smooth. Let stand until light and fluffy. Add eggs, sugar, soft butter, raisins and salt. Then add the remainder of flour and cinnamon. Mix to a stiff dough. Knead well and let stand until double in bulk. Divide into 2 equal parts for 2 loaves. Cut each part into 3 long strips. The strips should be 12 inches long and tapered at the ends. Press the ends together at the top end and braid the 3 pieces. Pinch top and bottom ends. Place on buttered cookie sheet. Cover and allow to stand until light. Bake 30-45 minutes until nicely brown. When cool, frost with powdered sugar, vanilla and a little hot water.
