Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Bread 074.1_0.jpg

Is there anything better than the smell of warm yeast bread rising in your kitchen? You may think that you do not have time to bake bread at home but I beg to differ. It’s true that a good loaf of bread may take 5 or 6 hours from start to finish but really, the yeast does all the work. There is a lot of waiting involved when making homemade bread and personally as a stay-at-home-mom there are a lot of days that I’m trying to ignore the clothes mountain forming in my laundry room. Waiting for bread to rise is much more fun. So, shall we get started?
