Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

If you know my son then you know that Cinnamon-Swirl Bread is right up his alley!
My kid LOVES any kind of banana or zucchini bread. 
So i figured why not try some Cinnamon-Swirl bread!! 
So here's what you'll need:

4 12-5 cups flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 1/3 cups milk
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs

In a large bowl stir together 2 cups flour and yeast.
In a saucepan heat the milk, sugar, and salt until warm. 
Then add the liquid to the flour mixture along with the eggs. 
Beat on low to medium speed for 30 seconds.
Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl!
Then beat on high for 3 minuets.
Next add as much of the remaining flour as you can(about 2 cups).
Then turn dough onto a well flour surface and knead for 6-8mins
until you have a stiff dough that is smooth and elastic.
Then place dough in a warm place to rise until double in size.
About 45-60mins.

Here is what you will need for the Cinnamon Filling:

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Mix together in a bowl, then set aside.
Once your dough has risen,
punch down the center and cut in half.
Then roll each half into a 12x7inch rectangle
and spread with butter then filling.
I actually brushed water instead of butter and it did not turn out the same. So be sure to use butter!
Then roll each rectangle into a log
pinch the seams, and place into greased loaf pans.
Let rise until doubled.
Then bake for 20-25mins in a preheated 375* oven. 
I like to melt butter over the top. 
Be sure to let the bread cool
before you enjoy a piece!

Till Next Time,
Kate
