Recipe: Cinnamon-Sugar Bread (Bread Machine)

Do you love toast with cinnamon-sugar topping?  Then you'll love this!  As any bread machine bread is, this is too simple to make because you throw the ingredients in the machine, turn it on, then a couple hours later you have beautiful homemade bread!  We love it toasted with butter, but it's also perfect plain with butter.

Tip for cutting this bread is to let it cool completely, then cut with an electric knife.

from RecipeZaar

1 cup milk

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 egg

3 cups bread flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons yeast

Place ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer.

Bake using the sweet bread setting if your machine has it.  If not, use white bread setting.

When the bread is done, remove from the machine and let sit on a rack for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. If it sticks, just loosen the sides with a pliable, plastic spatula and it should slip out easily.

This makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf that rose really nicely.

Check the dough about 5, 10 minutes into the kneading cycle; if you squeeze a good amount of the dough between your thumb and fingers and it seems a bit moist, and some dough sticks to your fingers, it should be just right; if not, adjust with water or flour accordingly.

"Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays" at New Nostalgia
My blog friend Amy has started a new link party called "Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays" over at her gorgeous site New Nostalgia.  Every Tuesday you can post a link for what you've marked off of your "procrastination" list.  This could be something simple like "made the beds today" or a bigger job like "cleaned out the garage".  You decide, post it, then link up your post.

For my part, I finally started to read "Julie and Julia" last night.  This has been sitting on my bedside table for over a month.  I even rented the movie last week but am going to return it without watchin it and read the book first like I initally wanted to do.  I finished the first chapter and laughed out loud at least a couple times as her hilarious writing.  Thanks for the inspiration Amy :)
Now, go have a look at what everyone else has accomplished and maybe you'll get inspired too!
Enjoy!  Sarah

  3. Thank you Laurie. My mother-in-law loves how our kids call me "Mum". I didn't realize it was "different" (as I call my own mother Mum) until I lived in the USA & everyone started noticing it. So, I thought it'd make a good blog name :) Thanks for stopping by!

  4. thanks for linking up! i love that being purposeful about sitting down to read and in turn, filling the heart and soul, is just as important as all the other things on our lists that require getting up and being active. i needed this reminder as i am a lover of books and it has been too long since i have read one!
    come back next week, i'd love to hear more from you!
    ps. oh yum, that bread...i can just imagine how good it smells..
