Orange Cinnamon Bread

Posted by Lisa

I have a co-worker whose husband makes her a loaf of orange cinnamon bread as a gift of love to her.  She brings it in to share with us and toasted up, it is heavenly!  I have not gotten his recipe from him yet, but I found this one online and it is terrific.  I made a double batch this morning and it turned out amazing.  I have enough for the family and some to share! My friend said she also uses it to make french toast...can't wait to try that too.
**both times I have made this I was unable to get all of the flour kneaded in, almost 1 1/2 to 2 cups less!  So don't be alarmed if you can't either**

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional water
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a saucepan, heat milk and orange juice to 110°, add to yeast mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup sugar, orange peel, salt, egg and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 15-in. x 7-in. rectangle. Brush with water. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over dough to within 1 in. of edge.

Tightly roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; seal ends. Place seam side down into two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over bread. Yield: 2 loaves
