I have been making the Honey Whole Wheat Bread recipe I posted a while back with good results so I thought I would try a new recipe this week. I settled on the Basic White Bread recipe from the booklet that came with my mixer. We don't buy white bread but I like it and I thought a homemade version wouldn't be so bad, right? Well, down at the bottom of the recipe it said, "Variations" and then I saw it: "Cinnamon Bread". The light shined down from heaven and I heard the angels sing!! Since the recipe made two loaves I made one plain and did the other as a Cinnamon Swirl loaf. Here's the deets:
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 packages active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
5 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
Place Milk, sugar, salt, and butter in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.
Now for the Cinnamon Swirl! Take one portion of the dough and roll it out to a rectangle.
