Top 10 Cinnamon Yeast Breads


Some of us can never get enough cinnamon! We add it to our applesauce, top it on our toast, and find endless ways to use this favorite spice in our recipes. Here are ten fabulous cinnamon yeast bread recipes that you'll want to try out for yourself.

1. Country Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Top on the list of any cinnamon bread is this classic cinnamon swirl bread. First you make the sweet, white bread dough, roll it out, and then smother the dough with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. After it has been rolled up like a jelly roll, the bread is allowed a second rising and baked. This is a favorite breakfast and dessert bread!


2. Orange Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Here is an easy yeast bread recipe that requires no kneading. Batter and casserole breads are wet dough breads that are allowed to rise and then are stirred down. The batter is scraped into a pan or casserole dish, allowed to rise a second time, and baked.
