Fluffy Homemade Cinnamon Bread

Fluffy homemade cinnamon bread is something that a weekend brunch is made for. The yeast risen dough is filled with swirls of cinnamon. It begs to be toasted and slathered with butter!

Bread recipes, like this fluffy homemade cinnamon bread, are my favorite to work with. Not because I eat a lot of bread, but because when I roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty, I learn.

Baking bread teaches patience. Waiting all day for yeast to rise, to finally see that golden brown treasure pulled from the oven. It teaches us humility, especially on the days when it just doesn’t work, like when the bread doesn’t rise, or it deflates at the last second.

It teaches us to keep practicing when that pizza dough doesn’t taste exactly like your grandmother’s classic recipe. But most of all bread teaches to be proud of our work. After working all day, kneading and waiting, for the finish product to fill the house with that warm and comforting smell, you can only look at the crumbs left behind and be proud of what you have accomplished.

This fluffy homemade cinnamon bread recipe comes from a friend of mine, whose website I adore.

My friend hit a bit of a rough spot, and it’s recipes like this cinnamon bread that I would make for someone when they need to know that others care for them. These are the type of recipes that I love to find on sites like hers, because they can help me to show her how important she is.

That is one good-looking loaf of bread. Like some of the other posters I immediately though French Toast.

Beautiful loaf. Cinnamon bread is one of my favorites to turn into french toast.
