Cinnamon Swirl Bread

One of our favorite wedding gifts was the bread maker! I've been wanting one of these for a long time and we got! So of course the first weekend we were back I decided to use it. Chris was hungry for french toast for breakfast, so I decided to make a Cinnamon Swirl Bread. This recipe is for a bread maker. I made a medium loaf, which is 1 1/2 pounds.


1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon

1 cup of milk

2 tablespoons of room temperature butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of granulated sugar

3 1/2 cups of bread flour

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast, active dry, instant, or bread machine


1) Place remaining ingredients in the order listed in the bread pan, with kneading paddle. Place the bread pan in the bread maker. Choose white, crust medium, press loaf and select medium. Press start to mix, knead, rise and bake.

2) When pause signal sounds, press pause, remove dough and kneading paddle.

3) Place dough on a paddle surface. Roll dough into a rectangle about 1/4" thick.

4) Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the surface of the dough. Roll the dough into a tight cylinder starting with the shorter side, making sure that the ends are sealed. Place dough back into the bread pan(make sure the kneading paddle is removed) and press start to continue.

5) When cycle is complete, remove bread from machine and let cool.

6) Bread slices best when it's cool.
