I saw this recipe on the Pioneer Woman’s site a long time ago and looked forward to making it. My daughter wanted to bake something with me, and since she LOVES cinnamon, I thought this would be the perfect time to finally make this bread. I used my bread machine for the first portion of this recipe but if you don’t have a bread machine, the Pioneer Woman’s site has step-by-step instructions. The bread was simple to make and my daughter had a lot of fun making it. It turned out so delicious and my daughter was extremely proud of her creation.
Cinnamon Swirl Bread:
- 1 cup of warm milk
- 6 tbsp of melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup of white sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 cups of flour
- 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
How to Make Cinnamon Swirl Bread
Once the bread machine stops (it was one and a half hours on my machine).
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp of softened butter for smearing
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Roll into a neat rectangle no wider than the loaf pan you are using. Smear the dough with butter. Combine the brown sugar with the cinnamon and spread evenly over the butter-smeared dough.
Starting at the far end, roll the dough toward you, keeping it tight and contained. Pinch the seam well to seal. Smear the loaf with a bit more butter then place the dough, seam side down, in a loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Cover with a cloth and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 40 minutes on the middle rack in the oven. Remove from the pan and allow the bread to cool on a wire rack. Slice and slathered with butter. Enjoy.
