YIELD: 4 loaves

    teaspoons salt
  • 3
    tablespoons vegetable oil

    cups cinnamon baking chips
  • 11 -12
    cups flour (I used a 50/50 split of bread and all purpose, you could also add some whole wheat)


  • Combine 4 cups flour, yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add water, eggs and oil, beat well until it has the consistencey of cake batter.
  • Stir in salt, 7 more cups of flour. to bring the dough to a smooth, "bread dough" consistency.
  • Knead in stand mixer with dough hook or by hand for 10 minutes.
  • Add up to 1 more cup of flour if needed.
  • Fold in cinnamon chips gently to avoid melting. *Alternately you could roll the divided dough into a rectangle and press the chips into the dough. Roll the dough up from the short side and tuck the ends under before placing in a greased loaf pan.
  • Place dough in greased bowl, cover and let rise for one hour, or until doubled.
  • Punch dough down and shape dough into four loaves.
  • Allow to rise for another hour, or until doubled.
  • Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes .
