to show your love.
I made this cinnamon bread with my one rise bread recipe.
It's such a versatile bread dough.
I thought a heart would be fun to make.
Julia from Blissfully Content inspired me with her
Almond Bread Heart.
She has the cutest ideas!
One rise bread
2 1/2 cups hot tap water
1 T salt
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
2 T yeast
Now slowly add 6 cups of flour
enough to bring the dough away from the sides of the bowl.
Keep mixing for 10 minutes.
Yeah, it's a long time but it makes the bread so good!
Now for the cinnamon part:
cut 2 T butter
1/2 cup sugar
& 1 T cinnamon
Roll out the dough in a large rectangle.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
Add nuts if you want.
The guys I love don't care for them ~ so no nuts.
Roll the dough into a log shape.
Transfer to a very large greased baking sheet.
Cut lengthwise down the center, cutting all the way through on one end and not at all on the other. Spread dough out into a heart shape. (Sorry I didn't take a pic of that process ~ I got carried away.)
Let rise in warm place for 1-2 hours.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or just until top starts to brown slightly.
It's not a perfect heart
but our love isn't perfect either.
Only God's love is perfect.
Now sugar coat it ~
1/2 box powdered sugar
& 1-2 T milk mixed together
and drizzled on top.
Serve up a little piece of your heart
to those you love today.
Above all, love each other deeply,
because love covers a multitude of sins.
