Well this yummy loaf of goodness didn’t last long in our house. It barely made it to the end of the day. It is a lot like cinnamon rolls minus the rolling and cutting. Just take small pieces of dough and toss them in butter then sugar and put in a pan. My kids love helping with this part!!
I really enjoy baking cinnamon anything because it fills the house with a wonderful aroma and reminds me of fall (even though it is 90 some degrees out right now). I know I am crazy for baking in the middle of the summer but I couldn’t stop myself. Feel free to use a bread machine to make things easier!
- 1 c milk warmed to 120 degrees
- 1 pkg active dry yeast
- 1/4 c sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 c soft butter
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 c flour I prefer bread flour but can use all purpose
- CINNAMON SUGAR
- 3/4 c sugar
- 3/4 c brown sugar packed
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 6 TBSP butter melted
- 1 c powdered sugar
- 1 TBSP milk
In a medium bowl combine 1 1/2 c flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add warm milk and beat at low speed until well combined.
Stir in butter and eggs. Add in remaining flour and mix well.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or place in mixer with a dough hook and knead for 3 minutes on a medium speed.
Let rise until double (about 45 minutes to 1 hour) covered and in a warm draft free place.
After the dough is done rising combine the cinnamon sugar ingredients in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a small bowl.
Grease two loaf pans.
Punch down dough and divide in half. Cut or tear off small pieces of dough. Mine usually vary in size from golf ball to quarter size. Dip each piece in the melted butter then roll in cinnamon sugar. Place in prepared loaf pan. Repeat with other half of dough.
Cover and let rise until double in size.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a plate to cool completely.
Combine the icing ingredients until smooth and drizzle over loaves.
I have also left these in the pan and drizzled with icing when cooled.
