For the Dough
  • 2 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 envelope) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For the Filling
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 ounces butter - melted
  • 2 heaping tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Add flour, sugar, yeast and salt to your mixer bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Add milk, vanilla and eggs. Add to mixer bowl and using the dough hook mix to combine. Mix dough adding flour if necessary until dough is well combined. Beat for about 5 minutes until dough comes together. Add dough to a greased bowl and cover with a towel. Let raise until doubled, about a hour.
  3. While dough is raising combine sugar and cinnamon. Melt butter and set aside.
  4. Grease and flour a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.
  5. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough into a 12 x 20 rectangle. Spread butter over surface of dough. Sprinkle cinnamon mixture on top. Cut into 3 strips lenghtwise. Stack the strips on top of each other. Cut the strips into 3 inch pieces and stand them up in the bread pan. Cover and let raise until doubled.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes. Let set in pan for 5 minutes and then turn it out of pan onto a cooling rack. Mix together glaze ingredients and put on top of bread.
  7. Note: After I let the dough raise about 30 minutes I covered it and put it in the refrigerator. When ready to proceed start with the rolling out of the dough and go from there.
