Cinnamon Swirl Bread
Ingredients for bread
1/2 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
3 tablespoons of butter
2 packages of active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups of warm water
5 to 6 cups of all-purpose flour
Ingredients for cinnamon part
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Place mils, sugar, salt, and butter together in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a warmed mixer bowl. Add lukewarm milk mixture and 4 1/2 cups of flour. Attach bowl and dough hook to mixer. Turn to speed 2 and mix for 1 minute.
Continuing on speed 2, add in the remaining flour, 1/2 a cup at a time, and mix until dough clings to hook and cleans the sides of the bowl, about 2 minutes. Knead on speed 2 for 2 minutes longer, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Dough will be slightly sticky to the touch.
Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover. Let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour or until doubled.
Punch dough down and divide in half. Roll each half out into a rectangle.
Mix together cinnamon and sugar.
Spread each rectangle with 1 tablespoon of butter. Sprinkle each rectangle with half of the sugar mixture.
Roll and shape loaves. Place in well greased loaf pans and cover.
Allow to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Remove from pan immediately after coming out of the oven and allow to cool before slicing.
