Homemade Cinnamon Bread


  • 1 cup milk (Then cool to lukewarm)
  • 6 T shortening
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 t salt


  • 2 tsp fresh brewer’s yeast 
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

Set aside Momentarily


Pour Milk mixture into Stand Mixer and add:

2 cups of flour to make a batter.

Then add the yeast mixture.

Lastly, add 3 room temp eggs.

Beat until well mixed.

Add approximately 5 more cups of flour or enough to make a soft dough (it should not be too sticky).

Mix your dough with the stand mixer dough hook or knead your dough by hand. When you are done place the dough into a greased bowl and set the bowl in a warm place to rise until approximately double in size (approximately 1.5 hours).

When the dough has raised 2x it’s size, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface. 

Coat with melted butter (approximately 4 tablespoons) and cinnamon-sugar mixture (approximately 1.5-2 cups)

Roll the dough into a log shape and divide it in half (you will make two loafs). Place each loaf into a well greased and floured loaf pan.

Cover the loaves and allow to rise double their size (approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour).

Bake in preheated oven at 375°F for approximately 20 minutes.

Allow the bread to cool slightly before trying to remove it from your pan.

Slice it and dig in! It is amazing plain or delicious warm with a little bit of melted butter and cinnamon sugar on top!

Enjoy and happy baking!
