PREP TIME: 25 minutes
COOK TIME: 40 minutes
LEVEL: Intermediate
YIELD: 1 loaf, 16 servings


For the Dough:

2 ½ tsp instant yeast

1 cup warm water

3 cups All-Purpose flour

1 ¼ tsp salt

3 tbs granulated sugar

6 tbs unsalted butter, softened

¼ cup dry milk

½ cup cornstarch

For the Filling:

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp All-Purpose flour

1 large egg, beaten with 1 tbs water

Method of Preparation

1. Combine all ingredients together in the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attached. Mix on low speed for 2-3 minutes, until the ingredients come together then move to medium speed until the dough becomes smooth and is no longer sticking to the bottom of your bowl. This may take additional flour if the dough is too wet, and water if the dough is too dry. This kneading process should take about 7-9 minutes.
2. Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow dough to rest and rise at room temperature for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
3. While the dough is rising, whisk together the sugar, flour and cinnamon and set aside.
4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and using a rolling pin, roll into a rectangle, about ½ – 1 inch thick.
5. Brush the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle the sugar mixture on top evenly.
6. Roll dough into a log, starting with the short end.
7. Transfer the log to a lightly greased 8 ½” x 4 1/2” loaf pan, seam-side is down. Cover the pan loosely with plastic wrap and proof at room temperature until the dough is just above the rim of the pan, about 1 hour.
9. Using the Wolf Convection Steam Oven, place loaf pan into the oven. Go to Gourmet, select Baked Goods, then select Bread. Choose Auto-Steam Bake at 400 degrees F. For a light and subtle crust, select Light Browned. This will take about 40 minutes.
10. Remove bread from oven and place on a wire rack. When completely cooled, loosen the edges and turn the pan upside down to release loaf. Slice and enjoy!
