Chunky Cinnamon Bread

Kneaders Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Recipe

Makes 2 loaves

1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
3 tablespoons sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup dough enhancer
3 tablespoons butter, soft
1 tablespoons oil
pinch of salt

Brown Sugar Filling:
2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Proof the yeast by sprinkling it over the water. Sprinkle the sugar over the yeast. It should all start to sink into the water and eventually become foamy. Meanwhile, add remaining dough ingredients into a bread machine or a stand mixer. Add the yeast mixture into the bread machine or bowl. If using a bread machine, run through dough cycle. If using a stand mixer– use a paddle attachment to mix together until a dough ball forms. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Punch down with bread hook. Repeat two more times.

Meanwhile, grease and line two bread loaf pans with parchment paper. Mix together the brown sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon. Remove from bread machine or bowl. Divide dough into halves. Continue to divide into halves until you have 64 small dough balls. Line the bottom of the two pans with dough balls. Spread each of them with the brown sugar mixture. Continue alternating layers of dough with layers of brown sugar until no more remains. Cover and let rise for 30 more minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for 27 to 28 minutes. Remove and let cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let continue to cool on rack.
