How to Make Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Like any bread recipe, it starts with good sweet milk. So you are going to add to a saucepan the following ingredients –milk, sugar, salt, and butter.

Heat over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Now, just cool this mixture to lukewarm.

Dissolve the yeast in warm water in your mixing bowl. Add the lukewarm milk mixture and 4 1/2 cups of flour. Attach the bowl and dough hook to the 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 the dough clings to hook and cleans the sides of the bowl, about 2 minutes.

Mix on speed 2 for 2 minutes longer, or until dough is smooth and elastic. The dough will be slightly sticky to the touch. 

Place the dough in a greased bowl, making sure to turn the dough over to oil the top. Cover with a damp towel.

Let the dough rise in a warm spot for 1 hour or until doubled. 

Punch the dough down and divide it in half. Roll each half out into a rectangle. 

Mix together cinnamon and sugar. 

Spread each rectangle with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Sprinkle each rectangle with half of the sugar mixture. 

Roll and shape loaves. Place in well greased loaf pans and cover with the damp towel again.

Allow the loaves 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.
