Cinnamon Spiral Bread Recipe

Step 1

For dough, soften yeast in lukewarm water. (Use warm water for dry yeast.) Pour scalded milk over sugar, salt and shortening. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in 1 cup flour. Add softened yeast and oats. Stir in enough more flour to make a soft dough.

Step 2

Turn out on lightly floured board or canvas; knead until smooth and satiny, about 10 minutes. Round dough into ball; place in greased bowl; brush lightly with melted shortening. Cover and let rise in warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.

Step 3

Punch dough down; cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough in half. Roll one half to form a 15 x 8-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with half of filling made by combining sugar and cinnamon. Starting with short side, roll up as for jelly roll.

Step 4

Place on greased 8-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 2-1/2" loaf pan. Brush lightly with melted shortening. Repeat with other half of dough. Cover; let rise until nearly double in size, about 45 minutes.

Step 5

Bake in preheated moderate oven (375 F.) 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from pans; brush with melted butter. Cool.
