Orange Cinnamon Bread

Connie Ottman


We enjoyed this wonderful breakfast treat while visiting a Bread and Breakfast in North Carolina. Warm and delicious!
There may seem like a lot of steps to this recipe but most of the time is spent letting the dough rise. It truly is an easy recipe; you just have to plan ahead. Enjoy!

2 Tbsp
active dry yeast
1/2 c
warm water
1 c
3/4 c
orange juice
1 c

1Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl.

3Add heated orange juice mixture to yeast mixture.
4Stir in 1/2 cup sugar, orange peel, salt, egg and 3 cups of flour to yeast mixture.

7Turn dough onto a floured surface.
8Knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.

10Punch dough down after it has doubled.
11Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half.
12Roll each portion into a 15 x 7 inch rectangle. Brush with water.
13Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar and sprinkle over dough to within 1 inch of edges.
14Tightly roll up jelly-roll style, starting at short side; pinch seams to seal.
15Place seam down in two greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
16Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and place on wire racks to cool.
