1 1/2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
How to Make It
Combine egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add 1 tablespoon yolk mixture to egg white, stirring well. Cover and chill remaining yolk mixture.
Combine yeast and warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Stir 1 cup flour, egg white mixture, 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, honey, and salt into yeast mixture; stir 1 to 2 minutes or until well-blended. Stir in 1 3/4 cups flour to form a stiff dough. Sprinkle work surface with remaining flour. Turn dough out onto floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes).
Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press 2 fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)
Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Roll dough into a 14 x 7-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle dough with cinnamon mixture. Roll up rectangle tightly, starting at short side and pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch seam and ends to seal. Place dough, seam side down, in an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Gently brush top of loaf with chilled egg yolk mixture. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove bread from pan immediately; cool on a wire rack.
