Cinnamon Bread

I am too sore even for only typing today, so I won’t waste words and I’ll go straight to the point! You HAVE to make this cinnamon bread, it is just too delicious to not give it a try….BUT, amigos, if you don’t have time to dedicate to it, well don’t even bother. Making bread is time consuming and require a lot, A LOT of dedication but, trust me, it is totally worse it. The bought stuff cannot compare!


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1-1/2 active dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1- 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • egg and milk mixture
  • oil and butter

Put the butter in a soucepan

and heat it up with the half cup of milk

Let the milk/butter mixture cool down a bit, then sprinkle in the yeast and wait about 10 min

In a bowl combine sugar and egg

Mix until combined. Add in the milk/butter/yeast mixture and mix

Add half of the flour and mix well

Then add the other half and keep mixing. Kneat the dough for a few minutes.

Drizzle a little canola oil in a bowl

Then add the ball of dough, toss it around to coat it in oil.

Cover in plastic wrap and put in a warm place and let it raise for at least 2 hour (even 3 if you have that time)

This is 3 hours later

Turn the dough onto the work surface and roll it out with your hands in a rectangular shape

Sprinkle on top sugar and cinnamon

Butter the loaf pan

Now roll the dough from one side to the other

and put the roll inside

Cover with plastic wrap, place in a warm place and wait 1 hour.

This is 1 h later….look how much it grew up, my little baby!

In a bowl beat one egg and a drop of milk and coat the surface of the dough

Bake at 180 C for about 30 – 35 min

and here we go….
