Great Harvest Cinnaburst Copycat Bread

When we lived in Wisconsin, I developed a love affair with the Great Harvest Bread company. They gave out free 'tastes' that tricked me into buying many loaves! I came across this recipe and knew I would be trying it. It is wonderful warm out of the oven, or toasted or just room temperature. It does freeze well, too!
Great Harvest Cinnaburst Copycat Bread
1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk

1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 teaspoon yeast (1 pack)

1/3 cup oil (I used veggie oil)
1/2 T salt
1 egg
4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup cinnamon chips

In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and warm water and milk; let bubble for about 5 minutes.

Add in oil and egg.  Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt.

Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl. Add the cinnamon chips when it gets close to the right consistency. The dough will be very sticky but the softer the dough the lighter the bread. So use the least amount of flour you can handle.

Let rise in mixing bowl for about 30 minutes.

Form into loaf (or whatever shape you want). (Beth did 2 loaf pans)

Let rise and additional 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

Makes 2 loaves
