Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. In a large bowl, combine the milk, orange juice, sugar, shortening, peel and salt. Add 2 cups flour, yeast mixture and egg; mix well. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down and divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each portion into a 15-in. x 7-in. rectangle.
  4. For filling, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rectangle. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon water. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short end. Seal edges. Place each seam side down in a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; spread over loaves. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

This is a wonderful breakfast bread. We like to butter it then fry it on a hot skillet. Top with maple syrup. Delicious!

Followed directions for bread exactly but made some adjustments to the filling. Added an additional tablespoon of orange zest and substituted brown sugar for the white. Replaced water with orange juice but used a bit more to make a semi crumbly paste before sprinkling on the dough. OMG...This bread will rock your orange world!!

MY REVIEW

Made using a mixture of Kamut and Unbleached Bread Flours (a 2/1 ratio, respectively), and of course adding vital wheat gluten to help out the whole grain flour. It was lovely, and rose perfectly w/great taste. I usually make cinnamon raisin swirl bread, but my son would always pick out the raisins (he doesn't care for them), this was the perfect solution, as he gobbled this bread w/o having to pick through it first. It never even made to to the french toast stage (which is what we've always done w/the leftover cinnamon raisin swirl bread), I will probably make it this way from now on .

I look for ways to use oranges from our orange trees. This is one of the tastiest!

I've made cinnamon bread for years, but this is the only one my family requests now.
