  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1-1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar



  • Heat milk and water to about 110 degrees. You can warm it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. Be sure the liquid is warm to the touch and not hot.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowl of your mixer. Add yeast and 1 tsp sugar and let sit for about 10 minutes to let yeast activate. Mixture will become foamy.
  • Fit your mixer with the dough hook and turn on low speed. Add eggs, canola oil, 1/4 sugar and salt.
  • Turn mixer speed up to medium and begin adding the flour, one cup at a time, until fully combined.
  • Remove dough from mixer bowl and place in a separate lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 1-1/2 hours, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Combine, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground cloves and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  • Lightly flour a large surface to roll out cinnamon bread dough on.
  • Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough out into a rectangle ( about 13"x9").
  • Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture covering the entire top of the dough. Make sure to use all of the cinnamon mixture.
  • Now, from the short end, roll the cinnamon dough all the way up while pinching the sides closed.
  • Using 1 tbsp of the melted butter, lightly grease a 9"x5" bread dish.
  • Place cinnamon bread into the dish, cover, and let rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brush the top of the cinnamon bread with remaining 2 tbsp melted butter.
  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, top will become golden.
  • Remove bread from the oven and let cool. Slice and serve with butter! Place in the toaster if you like your cinnamon bread toasted. Enjoy!
