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
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 :)
