Cinnamon Chip Bread (Great Harvest Copycat)

from Eat Cake For Dinner
Servings 2 loaves


  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, stir together yeast, sugar and warm water and allow to sit for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, it should be bubbly. If not, throw it out and start again. Add the warm milk, oil egg, and salt. Add 3 cups of flour slowly and beat until incorporated. Switch to your dough hook and begin adding more flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Continue kneading for about 6 minutes on medium-high. It will still be quite sticky but that's how you want it. Add the cinnamon chips and beat until just incorporated. Don't overbeat it as the dough will be warm and you don't want the cinnamon chips to melt completely.
  2. Transfer the dough to a greased mixing bowl and allow to rise until doubled in size, about an hour. Punch down dough and divide in half. Form each half into a loaf and place into two greased loaf pans. Allow to rise until doubled in size, another 30 - 45 minutes.
  3. Bake at 350F for 30 - 35 minutes or until browned on top and hollow-sounding when you tap it. Cool before slicing.
