2 packages yeast active dry
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk

4 to 5 cups flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon ground
1/2 cup butter real, softened
6 tablespoons butter real, melted


In a large mixer bowl combine flour, sugar, yeast and salt.

In a small saucepan heat milk and butter until warm (125° F.) With mixer at low speed add milk mixture to dry ingredients scrape bowl and beat at high speed for 2 minutes.

Add 1 cup flour and eggs beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Add remaining flour to make a stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl turn to coat surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, until doubled, about 60 minutes. Punch down dough. On a lightly floured surface knead lightly and divide into three portions cover and let rest 10 minutes. On a lightly floured surface roll out one portion to a 15 x 9-inch rectangle.

Grease three 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 -inch loaf pans. In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Spread one-third of the butter on dough. Sprinkle with one-third of the sugar mixture. Starting from the long side, roll as for a jelly roll. Fold ends in, bringing them together in the middle and seal.* Place in pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, until doubled, about 45 minutes. With a sharp knife make several slashes across each loaf.

Drizzle each of the three loaves with 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Bake in a preheated 325° F. oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until done Brush with remaining butter cool for 5 minutes in pans. Remove from pans cool on wire racks.

* Twisting the loaf after it is formed helps to distribute the butter and sugar-cinnamon more evenly.
