"A simple but fantastic bread. Light, and fluffy. You can adjust the cinnamon to your taste. I often add a tsp of cinnamon in with the first 2 cups of flour to get a more intense cinnamon flavour * cooking times do not include rising time. Makes 2 loaves"

Great bread! I think there is an error in the amount of yeast -- i used 2 1/4 teaspoons. I always love having one loaf to eat and one to freeze for later and this bread is perfect for that. Thanks for sharing
