Tyler Perkins - Cinnamon Bread

A Cinnamon bread that is really good, and pretty simple to make

Yield: 1 9x5 loaf of bread

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup Milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided in half
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • ~3 Cups bread flour (be sure to include some for work surface
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Process:

  1. Whisk yeast and 1/4 of sugar together till throughly combined
  2. Heat water and milk together on stove till ~110F/43C. Pour over yeast/sugar combo and mix gently. Let rise for ~5 mins till frothy
  3. Add 4 tbsp of soft butter to yeast mixture, till mostly broken up
  4. Add salt and 2 1/2 Cups of flour, 1/2 a cup at a time. Do not add more till dough has absorbed most of the flour
  5. Once dough is tacky an does not stick to sides of bowl, knead for 2 mins. Grease a bowl with oil/butter and cover dough in oil. Let rise for 2 hours in warm enviroment
  6. Grease 9x5 loaf pan with butter. Combine 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon together in bowl
  7. Knead dough for ~15 seconds, till all air is released. Roll with rolling pin to form a 9x18-inch sheet of dough. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on dough, leaving ~1inch gap around all edges
  8. Roll dough tightly to form a 9inch long log of dough. Pinch ends of log. Let rise for 1 hour, or till doubled in bulk
