Cinnamon bread


For the dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the water with the yeast and use a hand whisk to whisk them well.
  • Set the mixture aside for 5 minutes, to activate the yeast, until there are bubbles on the surface.
  • Add the flour, sunflower oil, sugar, salt, and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed, for 6-7 minutes, until the dough is homogenized and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and leave the bowl at room temperature for about 1 hour until the dough doubles in volume.

For the filling

  • In a bowl add the cinnamon, sugar, cloves, nutmeg, mix with a spoon, and set the mixture aside until needed.

To assemble

  • Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide it into two equal parts.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out one of the two dough pieces into a 30x40 cm parallelogram, having the large side in front of you. 
  • Brush the dough’s surface with half of the melted butter and sprinkle with half of the filling, making sure to leave a 1 cm border from the edges of the dough.
  • Roll the dough, starting from the large side that is in front of you to the opposite large side, creating a roll.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Carefully transfer the roll to the pan, making sure that the dough’s seam-side is on the bottom side (touching the bottom of the pan), and fold the edges of the roll inwards.
  • Follow the same process for the second dough piece and transfer it to the baking pan, placing it a bit apart from the first roll. 
  • Cover the baking pan with a dish towel and let the rolls double in volume, for 40-45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180οC (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Bake the rolls in the oven for 30 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let the rolls cool on a rack.

For the glaze

  • In a bowl add the icing sugar, the water, the cinnamon, and mix them with a spoon until you get a smooth and shiny glaze.
  • Pour the glaze over the bread and cut it into slices.
  • Serve.
