Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

Ingredients
All purpose flour -11/2cups
Rapid raise yeast - 1 1/4teaspoon
Sugar - 1/4cup + 2 tablespoons
Salt -1/4teaspoon
Cinnamon powder -1tablespoon
Milk- 3 tablespoons
Luke warm water - 3 tablespoons
Butter - 4 tablespoons
egg -1 (optional)


Method
Mix the yeast and a tablespoon of sugar, add the Luke warm water and keep it aside for a few minutes.
Heat the milk in microwave for 30 seconds, let it cool. Add the egg, another tablespoon of sugar, salt and a teaspoon of butter and mix everything well.

Now add the activated yeast with milk, whisk it then start adding the flour. Add the flour little by little and continue mixing till you get a sticky dough. You might be left with couple of tablespoons of flour in the total quantity( 11/4cups).

Dust you hands with dry flour and start kneading..add that remaining flour if necessary and knead the dough for 10 minutes. Brush it with oil, cover it with clear wrap paper or a wet towel and keep it in a warm place for 11/2 hours.

After 1.5 hours, the dough would have been doubled in size. Punch it and roll it into a rectangle.
Brush the melted butter generously, sprinkle the 1/4cup sugar and the cinnamon powder.
Sprinkle the melted butter (if any) on top of cinnamon & sugar.

Cut the dough into 3"wide stripes and stake them carefully.
Now cut the staked dough into 2" pieces.
Arrange them (cut-side down) on the greased loaf pan, sprinkle the remaining sugar & cinnamon, cover it with clear wrap and let it raise again for another 30 minutes.

Pre heat the oven to 350F. Cover the loaf pan with aluminium foil and made some slits on the foil. Bake the bread for 40-45 minutes.

Take it out from the oven, let it cool for 15 minutes. Loosen the edges with a knife and take it out from the pan.
Soft- delicious and aromatic Cinnamon-pull apart bread is ready..serve warm.

Note
Freshly ground cinnamon powder gives the best result, but you can use store-bought powder too! ;)
