Cinnamon Bread

Good coffee and a tasty bread

I was just going to link to Nigella Lawsons Norwegian Cinnamon Bread but annoyingly it is not on her site however I did find the recipe posted on Paris Pastry with fine photos to match.

The liquid ingredients melted butter, 2 eggs and milk should equate to 500ml. Use good strong white flour or Spelt flour it does make a difference. I also add a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and double the amount of cinnamon.

If you live in a dairy free house use Pura (available from good health food stores or suppermarkets) and soya milk.

In our house as per son #1 the recent teenager the more cinnamon the better.

1lb white flour
3/4 teaspoon bread soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
350ml soya milk (or mix soya yougurt with soya milk)

Set the cooker to 220 C.
Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Make a well in the center.
Pour in the soya and mix until just brought together.
Knee the dough three or four times only.
Roll out onto a lightly floured surface.

Cut into rounds, squares or roll out flat and use as a base for pizza or flat bread.
Lightly flour a tin tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes.

I often shape this into a long loaf and then cut it up and cook the bread producing perfect size small bread rolls for lunch or breakfast.

VARIATIONS
Replace the white flour with Spelt the wholewheat spelt is particularly good.
