Food Friday - Chunky Cinnamon Bread

First of all... YUM! Have you ever been to Cub Foods grocery store and purchased their deliciously awesome Cinnamon Bread? Holy Smoke Stack (as my cousin Anna would say) it is amazing. Of course it is SO hard to spend $3+ on a small loaf of bread that lasts + or - a week (OK in all honesty it is + or - 2 days...) so I thought I would Google it to find the recipe. I found a delicious one at Housewifery so I thought I would share it here. If you do try it (which you should) please let me know how it turns out!!

You will need:

1-1/2 c nonfat dry milk
1/2 c sugar
2 T active dry yeast
8 cups (+ or - ) flour
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 T salt
4 cups HOT tap water
2/3 c oil
1/2 c melted butter
1 1/2 c sugar
3 T cinnamon
1 c brown sugar

Combine first 7 ingredients into a mixer bowl.

Add the hot water and the oil. Continue to add enough additional flour until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. Next, p
lace dough in a large oiled bowl, turning over to coat the top surface (helps to prevent it from sticking to plastic wrap. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until double.

Roll dough into a large rectangle. Pour a little more than half of your butter onto the dough and spread all over. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar mixture then add a healthy covering of brown sugar.

Roll loosely, cinnamon roll style. (Be sure it’s loose!)

Cut diagonally into 1” slices going first one direction, and then cut diagonally going the other direction. It should look like an "X" pattern.

Pour a little melted butter into the bottom of each parchment-lined loaf pan. Heap the chopped dough into pans. (mine made 3 regular sized loaf pans, but could probably stretch it to 4). If you have any extra melted butter, you can drizzle it over each loaf - then sprinkle with a little more cinnamon sugar mixture. Allow dough to rise till double. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 - 30 minutes, until internal temp reaches 190 - 200. Allow to rest in pans for about 10 minutes, then remove to wire racks.

The story above reminds me: I have the most EMBARRASSING story ever to tell you. I will tell you tomorrow. And get excited because there is a video to go with it! Yes folks, my most embarrassing moment ever got caught on tape. Awesome. =)
