The Best Cinnamon Bread Recipe- Copycat (Great Harvest)

Cinnamon Burst Bread (like Great Harvest’s)-Makes 4 Loaves
3 T. yeast
1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten lightly (or to utilize the powered eggs on the shelf, 1/4 C. Dry Egg Powder +1/2 C. Water)
3 3/4 cup warm water
4 1/2 tsp. salt
3 T. vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups cinnamon bites (available at healthfood stores)
11-12 cups flour ( Can use half whole wheat flour)
Combine in mixing bowl 4 cups flour, yeast, and sugar. Add water, eggs, and oil. Beat well to “cake batter” stage. Stir in salt, cinnamon bites, and 7 more cups flour to make bread-dough consistency. Let mixer knead it to the right texture (add up to 1 more cup flour if needed). Place dough in greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour. Shape dough into 4 loaves. Let rise for another hour or until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes. Slice thick and serve warm with butter, or toast slices in the toaster (be careful, the cinnamon bites can burn your fingers), or make slices into French Toast. Yummy!
