Cinnamon bread that only requires one rise – quick and delicious!
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 1 whole egg
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon margarine, softened
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
In a mixing bowl, add salt, sugar, egg, yeast, and olive oil. Mix all ingredients until blended. In a small saucepan, warm milk on low heat. Once milk is warmed, pour it into the yeast mixture and stir well. Add flour; mix thoroughly.
On lightly floured surface knead bread lightly until dough forms into a ball. Roll dough out to about 1/2” thick, and 8” round in diameter.
Spread softened margarine onto dough, leaving a little bit for the top of the loaf. Sprinkle 3/4 of the prepared cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of margarine. Roll dough into the shape of a loaf of bread; tuck the ends underneath, and place in loaf pan.
With a sharp knife, make a slice lengthwise down the length of the loaf of bread. Fill the split with the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture, and brush and remaining margarine on top. Let rise for 1 hour.
Bake in 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool slightly in pan before removing. If you prefer (it’s optional) you can lightly brush margarine on top of the warm loaf of bread.
