WIP Wednesday: Bread
Today I made cinnamon bread again..
I wore my "Lotta Jansdotter Simple Sewing" apron. Good pattern. Cute fit and comfy.
I made the bread the old fashioned way with 10 minutes of kneading. (Almost burned off a quarter of a slice with all that exercise!)
Rolled out to be sprinkled with cinnamon...
Now all I have to do is the dishes!!
Now with Recipe:
1 pkg dry yeast (2.5 tsp)
1/2 c warm water
2 c scalded milk
2 ts salt
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c butter melted
6 1/4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 TB cinnamon
soften yeast in warm water
Combine milk sugar salt and butter. Let cool to lukewarm.
Stir in flour 2 cups at a time until the dough is moderately stiff.
Turn out onto a floured work surface and knead8-10 minutes until the dough is satiny and smooth. Form a ball.
Let rise in lightly oiled bowl, turning once to cover top with oil.
Should be doubled in bulk when finished rising. About 1.5 hours
Punch down and cut in half .
Roll out each half to a 6 x15 inch rectangle and sprinkle with half of the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll up fairly tightly.
Place in grease and floured bread pan or I did mine on a silpat sheet on a cookie pan.
Cover and let rise 1 hour.
Bake in pre heated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.
