Easy Amish Cinnamon Bread – This past Saturday was a perfect baking day.
Day long heavy drizzle and chilly temperatures just made me want to spend the day in the kitchen baking a loaf of fresh bread – cinnamon bread – after leafing through a downloaded copy of a new cookbook.
The recipe is easy to follow, requires a minimum of ingredients and results in scrumptious looking load of bread just begging to be buttered.
Much as it would happen if we were in Big Valley on a weekend morning.
There are a few steps I will alter before baking this particular bread again.
- Buy packets of fresh active dry yeast. The pack I used was not outdated but within a couple months of being out of date. It was immediately visible during the short proofing period. I purchased several packs at Thanksgiving and did not use them all. So – the freshest yeast you can buy.
- I had a new bag of all-purpose flour. The recipe does call for it and it was my intention to follow it to the letter but with my less than super fresh yeast, I should have opted for bread flour. All I was thinking about was a slice of buttered cinnamon bread!
I did add a generous coating of melted butter to the dough before sprinkling it with cinnamon sugar and rolling it.
Force of habit! That’s what I do when baking cinnamon rolls.
The loaf of Easy Amish Cinnamon Bread Recipe pictured above IS fresh out of the oven and yummy!
