Ought to there be anything higher for fall? This homemade cinnamon bread recipe is smooth, yeasty, and a touch sweet. So delicious when toasted and buttered!
Isn’t it glorious? And it’s the whole thing you’d ever want cinnamon bread to be. Smooth, yeasty, and a bit sweet, with a ribbon of heat, highly spiced cinnamon spiraling all through.

I used to love to eat it heat, slathered with butter. From time to time it had raisins too, which I am keen on. However I recognise they may be a controversial element (lol!) so I left them out right here. If you are pro-raisin although, you may usually sprinkle a 1/2 a cup or so over the cinnamon sugar, earlier than rolling up the dough and putting it right into a loaf pan to bake.
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1/4 ounce dry active yeast (1 packet)
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar, lightly packed
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided (approximately- you may need as much as to 4 1/2 cups)
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- Place the warm water in a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top and set aside for 5 minutes to allow the yeast to proof.
- Add the brown sugar, butter, 2 cups of the flour, and the salt, and beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.
- Stir in an additional 1 1/4 to 1 3/4 cups flour, until dough pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.
- Knead on floured surface, adding 1/2 to 3/4 cup additional flour, until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
- Place dough in large greased bowl, and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place until doubled in size, 30 to 45 minutes.
- Lightly mist a 9×5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.
- Punch down the dough and roll it into a rectangle, about 9 inches on the short side and 1/4 inch thick.
- Brush with melted butter.
- Stir the granulated sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl, and sprinkle the mixture in an even layer all over the butter.
- Starting at the short side, roll into a tight log (like a cinnamon roll).
- Transfer to the prepared loaf pan, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, uncover the dough, and bake the bread for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the loaf sounds hollow when lightly tapped.
