Really great bread...the rise was fantastic and the texture was perfect.
This recipe is ok. It takes quite some time to prepare, which I know is typicalle with homemade breads. I don't know that the flavor was worth the wait though. It was a bit dry I thought and not as flavorful as expected. I would rather make homemade cinnamon rolls instead of these as they take the same amount of time and effort.
Delicious bread! I used milk and water instead of just water, and butter instead of oil. Great, great bread.
I followed some of the comments suggestions and I went for a little over 30 mins in the oven, I also added cinnamon and sugar to the top, though I used brown sugar, I added a few touches of my own, like adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a tablespoon or so of cinnamon the the bread itself instead of just in the swirl. I did have a bit of trouble in the beginning because it wasnt firming up as I kneaded it, but that's probably because I'm still in experienced and if you are too, dont worry it works out beautifully. It is a bit of a dense bread but warmed with butter is an amazing snack and I had 3 slices right away
I was excited to try this after reading the positive reviews. Like others, mine was done in less time than indicated in the recipe. I am giving it only one star because we found this bread to be heavy and the bread part itself was very tasteless. Not at all worth the time to make it.
The bread turned out perfect, I reduced baking to 30 minutes as noted in other reviews. Since my husband loves raisins I softened 1 cup in hot water, drained and added to mixture. I also sprinkled few more raisins on top on butter, cinnamon sugar before rolling. I used butter instead of oil in last step before rolling. Goind slice and make French Toast with it.
The only changes I made were to add the raisins to the dough all at once, instead of when dividing it, and instead of using oil when rolled out, I used a bit of butter, and again on the top. Mine was done baking in 30 minutes. It turned out perfect!
This is the most awesome cinnamon bread ever. I had to use melted butter instead of oil because I was out and it turned out more delicious if thats possible. My 8 year old granddaughter comes over every weekend and begs me to make it for her. Only thing is the bread is done in 30 minutes. If you leave it in for 45 minutes it will be either burned or very dry. Thanks for the recipe.
Makes THE best French toast!
Great recipe, don't bake it for the 45 minutes. The outer crust will be to hard, easy and delish ;)
