    German Cinnamon (three-folds) Bread

    German Cinnamon three-folds Bread

    This bread is made in or around Ammana Iowa, near or in Ammana Colony.

    As indicated it has only three or maybe four folds. I imagine the bread is rolled out long like a flat football, then some sort of Cinnamon substance is added (will get back to this).

    The bread is light and a little open. It's a little larger than like a loaf of French Bread -- a little wider mostly -- in the middle (me too:). Maybe twice as wide (no, not me, the bread!).

    In each of the folds and throughout the flat part they have included some sort of cinnamon ...... but I seriously wonder if it's not 'more' than just a dry cinnamon product as it has some good tasty moisture in much of it but not all. Maybe its from our warming it up or from having been baked etc. I do know this, that I would add a great deal more than what they do.

    But it is very good -- I think it's probably very simple but I still don't know. I'm wondering though, how you get that 'moisture' type of cinnamon result .... that's what makes this bread so good! Thanks

    Spread a little soft butter over the dough and then sprinkle cinnamon sugar over it, I would guess. icon_biggrin.gif

    That's a good concept. Now, the bread itself.

    Since this bread is claimed by the Croatian, Austrian and Polish it could possibly be what you are looking for.

    That just might hit the spot.

    I'm not sure about the 'honey' but one could exclude that part but very good.

    Maybe some others will come forward.

    I have 2 versions of that bread posted here too, neither of which contain honey. Maybe they will be closer to what you had.

    Yo, hey .... both looked very interesting and maybe closer to the goal too. I would think though, that the bread I'm talking about would have contained more cinnamon.

    However, your recipe still might be the one because the original one I also thought needed more cinnamon and that may be just my personal taste, understand.

    So, I'm very anxious to try yours out! Looks promising.

    Thank you so much for your time, it's appreciated.

    Take care.
