I looked through my gram's recipe cards but had no luck, so I combined recipes I found online to get a recipe that was close. :D
You can make your cinnamon bread just with cinnamon and sugar, or you can add chopped pecans to make it even yummier!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup warm water or milk
- 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
- 2 1/2 cups AP flour (plus more for dusting/kneading)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional but yummy!)
Step 2: Making the dough
Measure out your flour and salt into a large bowl. Mix together with a fork.
Melt two tablespoons of butter in a small bowl.
Once that's done, your yeast should be starting to bubble. Stir again and then pour the yeast mixture into the flour along with the melted butter.
Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix everything together until it forms a shaggy dough. :)
Step 3: Kneading the dough + rising
Flour your work surface and dump the dough out onto it. Knead the dough, adding more flour as necessary until it becomes smooth and elastic.
Once it's kneaded, add some flour to the bottom of your bowl, put the dough on top and cover with plastic wrap. Leave it to rise for a half hour or until doubled in size. Once it's doubled, punch it down gently to remove some of the air bubbles.
