  • Notes:

    I used a 9-inch pan instead of 8-inch pan, so my loaf turned out a bit flatter and wider than it would have otherwise. But ... the bread tasted delicious, a great hit! And it was still delicious the next day, heated or toasted.

Number of Servings:


  1. 4 1/2 cups - bread flour
  2. 2 teaspoons - active dry yeast
  3. 2 cups - whole or low-fat milk
  4. 8 tablespoons - unsalted butter
  5. 1/4 cups - sugar
  6. 2 - large eggs

Make egg wash by mixing the large egg (beaten) with 2 tbsp cold milk and set aside.
Make cinnamon sugar mixture by combining the 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar in small bowl and set aside.
Gently roll into 12x8-inch rectangle, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll dough, fold in the ends and place into loaf pans (makes 2 loaves) seam side down; brush with more egg wash, and then let rest for another 2 hours.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
