Cinnamon Burst Bread

What am I going to do with all these little hard white wheat grains?  Well lets go on a little journey shall we?  Picture picture will you help us please?  Thank you neighbor.   First we magically get little wheat grains from the store.  (Picture picture was lacking in pre getting product home footage.)
Put the wheat in your handy hand-me-down, for which you are truly thankful, wheat grinder.  After a few minutes of loud processing you get lovely flour. 

A little of this, a little of that, mix it up, knead and grow. Ooh look kids, a big blob of dough!

Thank you Picture picture, wasn't that fun kids?  Bread is so yummy.  Come on, let's go into our kitchen.

Be careful.  If you make this bread it will probably not even get a chance to cool off in your kitchen.   It is good.  Very good.  My muffin top can tell you all about it.   Dip in egg mix and you've got a great french toast.  Spread a bit of cream cheese frosting and you've got a yummy desert. It makes a great neighbor gift.  Oh won't you be my neighbor.
It's also easy.  the hardest part is obtaining the special Cinnamon bites.  These are not the Cinnamon 'chocolate' chips you get in the chocolate chip aisle.  These are hard little pellets that you can obtain here or perhaps at a specialty or health food store. The orginal recipe is found here.  The only difference is I used half whole wheat flour.

Cinnamon Burst Bread - Makes 4 Loafs
3 T. yeast
1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten lightly
3 3/4 cup warm water
4 1/2 tsp. salt
3 T. vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups cinnamon bites
6 cups Whole wheat flour
5-6  cups  white flour

Combine in mixing bowl 4 cups flour, yeast, and sugar. Add water, eggs, and oil. Beat well to “cake batter” stage. Stir in salt, cinnamon bites, and 7 more cups flour to make bread-dough consistency. Let mixer knead it to the right texture (add up to 1 more cup flour if needed). Place dough in greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour. Shape dough into 4 loaves. Let rise for another hour or until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Thank you thank you to my great Sister-in-law for her donation of cinnamon flav-r-bites.  Apparently where she got them no longer sells them.  Lets hope we find a good substitute store.  The world would be a sadder place with out this bread.
