    Kit_Kat's Note:

    A copycat recipe for Cinnamon Burst Bread. The light texture of the bread is wonderful. Cinnamon chips are hard to find, and the ones that I have found so far (Hershey's) do not duplicate the taste of the ones in the genuine GH bread. I found this recipe on a site that is now defunct so I am posting it here to share and for safe keeping.

      This bread is very good; soft, moist. However, putting the cinnamon chips in before the 10 minute kneeding was a bit of a bread looks more like pumpkin bread then cinnamon burst. I did hand knead some additional chips in before I put the dough in the pans and those were great. Next time I will not add the chips until the bread has proofed the first time. (I used honey and butter instead of sugar and oil as suggested by another post; thank you!)

      Although I have not tried this recipe, I know they used honey instead of sugar, butter instead of oil, and no use of eggs.
      I look forward to trying your recipe :) and comparing to the original.
      Thanks for the recipe!
