Cinnamon Chip Bread

Snow days are allowing some much needed updates to this little food blog! This bread is amazing, served warm with a little butter and you will not be able to eat just one slice! Now, Kathy and my amazing sister, Katy, may want to start off with something more easy like pizza dough or even cinnamon rolls , since I know yeast frightens them both slightly! The yeast is not the scary part in this recipe, however the dough is very sticky, hard to work with. But if you can get past all that, it is completely worth it!

Cinnamon Chip Bread
adapted from Rae Gun Ramblings

1 cup warm water (Not too hot to the touch)
1 cups warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (1 package)
1/3 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
4-5 1/2 cups flour
1 cup cinnamon chips

In mixer, combine sugar, warm water and milk. Add yeast to the top and let rest for 5 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form.
Add in oil and egg and mix till combined
Slowly add 2 cups of the flour, then the salt.
Once the salt is combined, add remaining flour, just enough flour that the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Add Cinnamon chips and let rise for 30 minutes. Remove and place in greased in loaf pan, no need to get fancy, as the dough, as mentioned is sticky!
Let rise for an additional 30 minutes.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I checked mine at 30 minutes, and the top was browning too close to burnt for me, so I placed foil over the top for the remainder of the baking time.
Makes 2 loaves

Katy/Kathy-try it :) And Call me before you do so I am ready to take your calls for about 20 minutes :)


  1. Sounds good...I think my bread baking skills can handle this one...and who doesn't love cinnamon in any kind of bread??? Do you have a photo of the finished bread to share?

    1. Yes, that's what I get for taking too much time away from doing this! Thanks for the reminder! What about yours? Are you still doing it? I tried to go awhile ago but didn't have a log in?

  2. Cinnamon chip bread?!? How did I miss this?? Looks like this delicious dish was made strictly for my belly :) The recipe, however, doesn't. Good thing you're coming in town in a couple weeks! Don't worry. I'll have the ingredients all ready to go for ya. Best part? I'll be able to watch my niece and nephew while you make me some of this yummy bread. It's a win/win for both of us in my opinion!
