We really like the Chunky Cinnamon Bread that Cub Foods sells. But I was tired of paying $3 a loaf for it and decided to do some searching for a recipe. I came across a great post where someone had already figured it out! It turned out great! It's really yummy warm with butter. It's great as toast. It makes AMAZING french toast!
Chunky Cinnamon Bread
adapted slightly from The Changeable Table
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.
Add enough additional flour until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl.
Place dough in a large oiled bowl, turning over to coat the top surface.
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.
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.
