Cinnamon Swirl Bread
Yield: 1 loaf
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
4 tablespoons of butter
1 cup water
1/2 cup cinnamon chips (optional)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons four
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dough ingredients, using mixers or a wooden spoon to mix until the dough begins to come away from the sides of the bowl. Knead with a dough hook, or by hand on a lightly oiled surface. Knead until dough is smooth and silky- about 10 minutes. Add a little bit more flour as needed.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set it aside to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until puffy and almost doubled in size.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface, and shape it into a long, thin rectangle, about 16" x 8". To make the filling, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and flour in a small bowl.
Brush the dough with some of the egg/water, and gently press the filling onto the dough. Beginning with a short edge, carefully roll the dough into a log. Pinch the side seam closed and place the log in a lightly greased loaf pan. Cover the pan with lightly oiled plastic wrap, and allow the bread to proof for about 1 hour at room temperature, or until it`s about 1" over the rim of the pan.
In a small bowl combine the streusel ingredients, using your hands to work the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly. Brush the loaf with more of the remaining beaten egg, and add the streusel, using your fingers to gently apply it to the dough, being careful not to deflate the loaf.
Bake the bread for about 45 minutes. If the loaf is browning too quickly after 30 minutes of baking tent the top of the loaf with foil for the last 15 mins of baking. Let the bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer the loaf to a cooling rack. I found tilting the pan to the side and using a butter knife to loosen it helped it pop right out without losing any streusel topping, but a little may fall off in the process.
