Course Bread
Servings 1 loaf


For the Dough

  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 TBSP Sugar
  • 1/2 cup room temperature whole milk
  • 1 pack active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 2 cup all purpose flour (You may need a little more)

For the Filling

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp whole milk

For Brushing

  • 1 tbsp whole milk


  • In a large bowl, add egg, salt, sugar, milk, yeast and flour and combine together until dough forms
  • Cover the dough with a wet towel over the bowl it is in and leave it in a warm place (or an oven with a proof setting) for about an hour
  • While the dough is rising, make the filling.
  • In a small sauce pan on low heat combine cinnamon, sugar, butter and milk until melted. Turn off heat and set aside to let cool.
  • Once the dough is done proofing, divide the dough in five smaller dough balls. Cover and let rise again for 30 min.
  • Roll each dough ball into a regtangular shape and on the bottom half of the dough, add a thin layer of the cinnamon mixture.
  • On the top of the rolled out dough, use a pizza cutter or dough scrapper and cut the dough in thin strips (think of a comb)
  • Roll the dough from the side of the cinnamon filling up to the cut edges.
  • Repeat for all 5 pieces of the dough and put into a cast iron pan or cake pan.
  • Let rise covered for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat over to 350 F
  • Brush top of bread with milk
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from oven, cool and enjoy!
