Quick Cinnamon Bread

Makes 1 loaf
Adapted from King Arther Flour
 
3 cups flour 
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg
Cinnamon & sugar, for topping 

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, yeast, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.  In another bowl, whisk together milk, butter, and egg.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring with a large spoon until smooth.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour.

After 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 350 F.  After an hour, place the dough into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the top with a cinnamon sugar mixture (as much or as little as you like).

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Allow bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.  Try not to slice the bread before it has cooled (we know, it's hard!).
