Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Comment on this recipe

"My family loves this sliced and toasted for breakfast."

Ingredients

2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
1/3 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1 cup warm milk (110 to 115 degrees)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar, divided
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, butter, salt and 2-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each half into an 18x8-inch rectangle. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over the dough.

Roll up each rectangle from a short side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down in two greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves.

1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
