Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Recently, I saw this recipe on the Pioneer Woman's blog. It is for home made cinnamon swirl bread.
I was a good little blogger and took pictures of the process but my ambition tampered as I was waiting for the dough to rise. Give me a break.. it is a total of 4 hrs rising time (well worth the wait by the way). Being the genius I am, I also deleted said pictures off of my camera before uploading them onto my computer. "Delete all pictures from memory card" "OK"... oops, wrong button. Thankfully there were no other important pictures on my camera at the time.

Any who.

I saw this recipe, drooled a bit and decided to give it a try. It sounds tedious but it is actually quite easy. Time consuming. But easy non the less. Give it a whirl.

Oh and just in case you make the same mistake I did, really follow the recipe closely when it says to allow the butter/milk mixture cool to warm before adding the yeast. Being someone scatter brained on baking day, I just tossed the yeast right into the hot milk/butter mix.

Bad.
Bad.
Bad.
Baaad idea.

It killed the yeast and the dough didn't rise. Also, don't skimp on the rising time. As aggravating as it is to wait for 4 hours, you won't regret it one stinking bit.

OK OK I know.. shut up and give you the recipe... here ya go:
