Cinnamon Swirl Bread and Feature Friday Blog Hop: All Things Cinnamon

Bloodhound is crazy about cinnamon swirl bread.  Until meeting Jodie at "It's ALL Good in Mommyhood" he was only able to eat it when my sister brought it fresh from the farmer's market, near her house.  She has this recipe posted on her site along with many others, plus ideas for raising children and saving money.  Make sure you take a moment to check it out.  I made two changes to her recipe.  I divided the dough into two loaves as Bloodhound really likes lots of cinnamon.  This allowed for less bread between the strips of cinnamon.  Obviously it is impossible to cook two loaves of bread in a bread machine, so I placed them into individual pans and baked them in the oven. 

Cinnamon Swirl Bread
(printer friendly version)

Bread :
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons room temperature butter
1 egg at room temperature 
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 and 1/2 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1 tablespoon cinnamon.

Add the milk, butter and egg to the bread pan in the bread maker.  Then add flour, sugar, salt and yeast.  Set the maker to start the dough setting.  When the bread machine finishes this cycle (after the first rise if your's doesn't have a dough setting) remove the dough and cut in half. Roll out into a strip that is six inches wide and 15 inches long.  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon and roll tightly from long end, so as to create a six inch long roll.  Place in a small lightly oiled bread pan (8"x4"x2 1/2") and cover with oiled saran wrap or a damp tea towel.  Repeat with the remaining dough.  Allow to rise for 30-45 minutes and then bake in 350F oven for 25 minutes.

Whole Wheat Version:  Replace white four with 3 1/4 cup of whole wheat and 1/4 cup of gluten.
