1 cup of warm milk

6 tablespoons of butter

2 and a half teaspoons of yeast

3 and a half cups of flour

1 teaspoon of salt

2 eggs

1/3 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of cinnamon + 2 tablespoons of sugar

A mixture of one egg with 3 tablespoons of milk


How to prepare

Melt the butter in the warm milk, then add the yeast and leave the mixture for 10 minutes.

In another bowl, mix the flour with the salt.

In an electric mixer, beat the sugar and eggs, then add the milk and butter mixture. Gradually add the flour and beat the mixture until you get a coherent dough (if the dough mixer is not available, the hand can be used to knead the dough). Add more flour if needed.

Cover the dough with cling film and set aside for two hours.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and make a rectangular shape. Brush with butter, then evenly sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Roll well lengthwise, then place it on a greased tray and leave it aside for two hours until it doubles in size.

Brush the bread with milk and eggs, then place it in the preheated oven for 40 minutes.

The bread is left to cool down before cutting.
