Cinnamon Bread

I made this for The Blog Tech and his fiance for breakfast yesterday.  It's a very simple recipe but makes a very good loaf of cinnamon bread.
 Here's the recipe:

1 cup water
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
1/3 cup vegetable oil
 1/2 T salt
1 egg
4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups flour
cinnamon sugar
  • In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and water and milk; let bubble for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in oil and egg.
  • Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt.
  • Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl.  The dough will be very sticky but the softer the dough the lighter the bread. So use the least amount of flour you can handle.
  • Let rise in mixing bowl for about 30 minutes.

  • Roll it out and spread it with some melted butter and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.

  • Roll it tightly, form it into a loaf and place it in a greased and parchment covered loaf pan.
  • Let rise an additional 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.

I didn't get a sliced photo since I didn't get any of the bread.
