I have a friend who's birthday was Saturday and I asked her what kind of bread would you like the Bread Fairy to make you , and she picked Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Here again going out of my comfort zone, as I have never made this kind of bread before. I went searching on All recipes.com and found this recipe Cinnamon Swirl Bread. The only thing I changed in the recipe was to add 4 teaspoons of vital wheat gluten, why you might ask, because to me it makes a more stable loaf and it seems to rise just a bit more. I also did not put the glaze on it because it tasted sweet enough to me. Below are some pictures as I made the bread.
The above picture is rolling the dough out and putting the butter and cinnamon sugar on.
This is dough as I rolled it up like a jelly roll.
In the pan to rise about an hour.
Ready to go into the oven.
Out of the oven, I brushed the tops with butter.
Here it is cut and ready to eat, I don't think I did a bad job and it tasted good too. So a Happy Birthday goes out to Jeanie and her birthday bread.
