Cinnamon Bread

Cinnamon Bread

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 additional Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 package yeast
  • 3 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon - divided
  • 2 additional Tablespoons butter or margarine - softened
  • 1 egg white
Combine milk, water and 1/3 cup butter in a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat until liquids are very warm. Butter does not need to melt.

Place 4 cups flour in a bowl with 6 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and yeast. Mix well. Add eggs and warm liquids, mix and knead. Knead in remaining flour.

Place in a well greased bowl and roll to grease top. Let rest covered until dough doubles in size.

Punch dough down and divide in half. Shape halves into loaves and place in well greased pans, let rise until doubled in size.

In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons white sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 Tablespoons butter (or margarine), mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over batter.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes. Test with a toothpick to be sure bread is done. When inserted it should come out clean.

Remove from pans and brush all surfaces well with shortening or cooking oil.

This recipe makes 2 loaves of bread loaded with cinnamon flavor.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Saunny for this recipe.

Be sure to read the comment below from Jules and this bread turns out great. A little less salt is definitely important.

I'm happy with this cinnamon bread and it was well liked by my kids & their friends. I have A few suggestions or clarifications on the recipe. First, I used 1 1/2 tsp of salt (rather than 1 Tbs), second be cautious to not overheat the milk, water, butter mixture or you risk cooking the eggs (it should be very warm, not hot). Third, when making the topping use 1/2 cup of sugar (as listed in the ingredients) and last, use the egg white to brush the top of the loaves of bread before you sprinkle on the topping.
