Sweet Cinnamon Swirl Bread: An Elizabethan Cookbook

Sweets to the sweet! Farewell. – Hamlet

Not overly sweet, this bread would be great with breakfast, afternoon tea, or post-dinner coffee.

Sweet Cinnamon Swirl Bread

½ Basic Bread dough

¼ cup butter, melted

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

¼ cup white sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Roll out dough to ¼ inch thick on a floured surface. Mix melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar together and spread evenly over dough. Slowly roll the dough, mashing down the ends to enclose the loaf. Bake 40-45 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (for easier cleanup). Allow bread to cool completely. If desired, brush cinnamon mixture on top of bread.

Optional: Cut rolled dough in half and braid. Braiding tutorial with pictures found at Home Cooking Adventure.
