Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This post is for all those out there who missed my bread making class. The ladies who came learned the simple secret to delicious homemade cinnamon swirl bread as well as some tips and tricks for making bread of any kind.

For cinnamon swirl bread, you can use any basic bread dough recipe. You'll find one of our favorites here. Once the dough is finished with its first rise, roll it out into a rectangle that is about as wide as your loaf pan.

Spray the dough with Pam or spread with melted butter.

Sprinkle brown sugar on the dough.

Be sure to get it out almost to the edge.

Sprinkle with Cinnamon and Sugar mixture. (Just mix a little cinnamon with some sugar. I always keep some mixed in one of my old cinnamon bottles so it is ready at all times to make cinnamon toast or sprinkle on a pie or whatever.)

Roll up tightly, beginning on the short side.

Pinch the seam to seal tightly.

Tuck the end under so it will fit your pan and give a nice rounded look to your loaf.

Here it is with both ends tucked under.

Place in a greased loaf pan. Spray the top of the loaf with oil to keep it soft as it rises.

Cover with a towel until it has reached the top of the pans. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Enjoy a little slice of heaven!
