Bread

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup oil I use light tasting olive oil
  • 3 cup warm water
  • 1.5 Tbsp Bob's Red Mill Active Dry Yeast

Cinnamon Filling per loaf

  • 1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Granulated Sugar

Instructions
 

Bread

  • Combine the warm water, Bob's Red Mill yeast, and 2 cups of the Bob's Red Mill flour into a large mixing bowl. (KitchenAid or Bosch) Stir two or three times, then allow to sponge for 15 minutes.
  • Once sponging is complete, add in the honey, oil, dough enhancer, and salt. Start to mix on low speed. Begin to add in remaining flour until dough starts to clean the sides of the mixing bowl. Do not allow dough to get too stiff (dry). Dough should be smooth and elastic. Depending on altitude and weather, you may need a little more or less than 9 cups of flour.
  • Knead the bread until small bubbles or blisters appear beneath the surgace of the dough. 6 to 10 minutes should be sufficient to develop the gluten.
  • Note* Towards the end of adding the flour my KitchenAid was having a hard time getting all the ingredients from the bottom of the bowl incorporated into the bread. I ended taking it out, oiling my counter surface and hands with olive oil, and kneading by hand for about 5 to 7 minutes. It will depend on the size of your electric mixer if you'll need to do this. Bosch mixes can handle the load a little easier than KitchenAids.
  • Seperate the dough into three even pieces, shaping them a little longer and narrower for rolling out.
  • Roll each loaf out to about 12x7 inches. Taking your white sugar, evenly sprinkle over entire surface. Do the same with cinnnamon. Starting at the end, roll loaf up, pinching lengthwise to seal. Pinch each end, the pull up onto the tummy of loaf (where you sealed it lengthwise) and pinch again to seal to tummy.
  • Place tummy side (sealed ends) into greased loaf pan. (or you can use parchment paper to line pans like I did)
  • Allow to rise in a slightly warmed over or other warm place until each loaf is double in size. (about 30-60 minutes)
  • Bake loaves for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Bread is cooked through when it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom, or when the tops adn sides are a golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and taking a stick of butter, glide it over top of loaf to seal and provide a beautiful shiny golden top! Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from pans. Let cool for another 10 to 15 minutes (if you can) before slicing up, adding a significant amount of butter, and digging in! Enjoy!
