In a bowl, combine warm milk, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the melted butter, activated yeast mixture, and the egg. Mix until a dough forms.


Knead the dough on a floured surface for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.


Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan.


Punch down the risen dough and roll it out on a floured surface into a rectangle.


In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and ground cinnamon for the swirl.


Spread the softened butter over the rolled-out dough and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly.


Roll the dough tightly from one end to the other to form a log. Place it in the greased loaf pan.


Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the dough rise for an additional 30-45 minutes.


Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.


Allow the Cinnamon Swirl Loaf to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for this recipe
