Cinnamon Sugar Bread

We love cinnamon around here, especially when it is in cahoots with sugar... and soft bread right out of the oven. So, here is an alteration to this recipe to make Cinnamon Sugar Bread!

In a large bowl, stir together well:
2 and 3/4 cups flour (all purpose or mix in some whole wheat)
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 Tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
1-2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

Add and stir:
1 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

Stir until it resembles dough and then knead the dough until it is smooth. If it is sticking to your hands, add a few pinches of flour. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with a damp cloth and allow to rise for 20 minutes in a warm place.

Family Dinners

Since it's birth, this blog has been all recipes and ideas of how to cook and bake delicious foods without milk products.

So, if you are cooking for a family, not everyone has to go without dairy. There are ways to split up the meal and make special accommodations for the non-dairy types in the group. 
And I have to mention that the pizza shown above was the MOST AMAZING PIZZA I have made so far. And that is thanks to some recent adjustments to my Focaccia bread recipe that I use for the crust. It is so full of flavor, soft and thick. Perfect! More about making your own pizza sauce here.
