Amidst my Artificial Intelligence quiz prep, I found myself surfing the web for some cinnamon bread recipes!! I came up with my own spin on the Braided Cinnamon Bread and I assure you that it is NOTHING short of FABULOUS and DELICIOUS in every cinnamon-y way. It's ridiculous, not even funny, how inviting this looks because it tastes even better. It's kinda looks like a Christmas wreath as you can see, except that apart from hanging this on your door this tastes ridiculously good. Did I just say ridiculous twice? Coz it's THAT good!
Ingredients time! They're just shelf groceries that everybody stocks so I'm sure you have these :
For the bread :
- 1 packet of yeast (2 1/4 tsp yeast)
- 3/4 cup warm milk
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/8 cup melted butter
- Pinch of salt
For the filling :
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup softened butter
In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, warm milk & sugar. Let this mixture stand for about 10 minutes, after crushing the big lumps of yeast with a spoon.
In the picture below the left one is before, and right one is the yeast AFTER 10 mins. As you can see the mixture becomes frothy and bubbly due to the release of gas by yeast.
At this point, you want to preheat your oven to 200deg celcius. While that's happening...
After the dough has risen, spread it flat to about 1/4 inch thickness.
