Cinnamon Bread

Like cinnamon rolls? Then this bread is a no-brainer! Tastes super yummy, makes your house smell fabulous, and can be eaten at for a few days (if it lasts that long!). I had to look at a few stores to find the cinnamon chips. They are by Hershey's, and I found them at Albertson's. Worth the hunt...let me tell ya!


3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 sugar
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup cinnamon chips
Cinnamon sugar mix, for topping

In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, yeast, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, stir together the milk, butter, and egg. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until smooth. Cover and let mixture rest at room temperature for 1 hour, then stir in the baking powder and cinnamon chips.

Set oven at 350.

Spoon the batter into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with the cinnamon sugar.

Bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven, let it rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer it to a rack to cool completely. Wait until bread cools to slice.
