GLAZED CINNAMON BREAD RECIPE

1 cup warm (110 degrees) water
1 TBS sugar
Two (.25oz) pkgs active dry yeast
3 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt

1/2 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 cup raisins (optional)
1-1/2 cups milk
8 cups flour



Sugar Crust:
1 TBS flour
1/4 cup sugar

Cinnamon Swirl:
3/4 cup white sugar
4 TBS cinnamon
2 TBS butter, softened

Place yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar in with the warm water; setting aside until yeast is frothy (approximately 15 minutes).

Mix in eggs, sugar, salt, butter or margarine and raisins. Stir in milk. Add the flour gradually to make a stiff dough.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes. Place in a large, greased, mixing bowl, and turn to grease the surface of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle; approximately 24 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. Spread the softened butter over the surface.

Mix together 3/4 cup sugar and 4 tablespoons cinnamon, and sprinkle mixture on top of the buttered dough. Sprinkle with raisins if you are using them. Roll up tightly; the roll should be about 3 inches in diameter.

Mix the sugar crust ingredients together and sprinkle (then pat) over the entire surface. Cut into thirds, and tuck under ends. Place loaves into well greased 9 x 5 inch pans. Spray the tops of the loaves lightly with vegetable or butter flavored spray. Let rise again for 1 hour.

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and grease 3 loaf pans.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until loaves are lightly browned and sound hollow when knocked. Remove loaves from pans, and brush with melted butter and then the glaze (optional). Let cool before slicing.



Glaze
1/2 cup homemade powdered sugar
2 TBS homemade unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
milk
Mix the first 4 ingredients together and add milk - 1 tablespoon at a time - until desired consistency is achieved.

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
