Cinnamon Bread

I make my husband's breakfast sandwiches every day.

And unfortunately I'm going to run out of something no matter how I try. So on my way home I decided to make a grocery run. Unfortunately I found myself buying everything but the cinnamon bread I needed.

Good thing I had an easy recipe to make it from scratch. 

Cinnamon Bread Recipe:

1 cup lukewarm water
1 packet highly active yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon

Combine the water, yeast and sugar in a mixer with a dough hook. Add the olive oil, flour and salt and mix until incorporated. Let rise covered in a warm place for 30 minutes. Roll out into a rectangle. Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. With a pastry brush spread olive oil lightly over the surface and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the rectangle. Starting from one side start to roll the dough all the way to the end. Pinch the ends and place in a bread loaf pan. Let rise for another 30 - 45 minutes. Put in a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes

Enjoy the cinnabon smell in your house.


  1. That's a nice variation of the cinnabons I've made, and I gotta guess it's be great toasted.Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi, I'm making this bread right now! I just have a couple questions. The sugar measurement says "1/2 sugar" is it supposed to be 1/2 cup? I'm a little concerned about the amount of cinnamon. Is it really supposed to be 8 tablespoons? I looked at other cinnamon bread recipes, I've seen a maximum of 2 heaping tablespoons. I already mixed up the sugar/cinnamon mixture. I think I'll just end up using what looks right.

  3. I'm so sorry! I just saw this and I don't know how I left that out. First you are right its not supposed to be 8 but 3 tbsp. But I like my cinnamon. Its 1/2 cup sugar. I'm really sorry but I hope it turned out well...

  4. No problem at all! I just sprinkled on a few tablespoons of the mixture. It turned out really good! I'm making it into french toast right now :)
