Cinnamon Apple Swirl Bread

Okay so you know I have been making lots of recipes with apples in them...well here's a new one for you: Cinnamon Apple Swirl Bread! Not only is this delicious, but it is light and airy and a perfect side for breakfast or a snack. This recipe springs off of the Sweet White Bread recipe which I love so much! I have made a few tiny changes to make this recipe taste like it does. I hope that you will enjoy the deliciousness of this bread!

This recipe makes 4 loaves.
You can freeze the extra loaves to enjoy at a later time.

1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup of butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon of sugar
2 teaspoons salt
9 cups white flour
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 egg
2 cups of warm water
2 Tablespoons of yeast
Flour for surface

4 Tablespoons butter, melted
4 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 pints (4 cups) of Apple Butter

1. In a microwave safe bowl put milk, butter, vanilla, and 3/4 cup of sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes.
2. In a liquid measuring cup pour the water and yeast and 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Set aside.
3. Stir salt, two cups of flour, cinnamon, and the egg into the microwaved mixture.
4. Add yeast mixture to cooled butter mixture.
5. Mix in 2 cups of flour at a time. Remember you have already added two cups.

This is half the dough in one bowl. It is ready to be divided up.

6. Divide the dough into two bowls. Set in a warm place (garage in summer works great! Outdoors in fall is good also.) to rise for about 2 hours.
7. In a small bowl mix the melted butter and brown sugar for the filling.
8. Divide the risen dough into four sections. Try and make them as even as possible.
9. On a floured surface roll out one section at a time into a rectangle shape (don't worry about the shape being perfect).
10. Spread four spoonful's of the butter mix on the dough.

This is what my bread looked like right after I
put apple butter all over it.

11. Spread 1 cup of the apple butter over the butter on the dough.
12. Roll the dough up like you are making cinnamon rolls.
13. Place in a greased bread pan.
14. Repeat steps 9-13 for the remaining three loaves.

This loaf is reaady for the oven!

15. Set all of the loaves in a warm place and cover with a cloth or paper towel. Let rise for 1 hour.
16. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
17. Bake the loaves for 25-30 minutes.
18. If you have remaining butter/brown sugar mix you can spread it over the top of the loaves as they are comming out of the oven.
19. Let the loaves cool completely and store them in Ziploc bags or in an air tight container. If you are going to freeze them make sure to get all the air out of the bag before sticking the loaf in the freezer.
