  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 lb brown sugar loose - approx. 3.4 cups
  • 1/2 cup margarine softened
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 2 tbsp dry yeast
  • 18 cups all-purpose flour (approximately)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon


  • In a large mixing bowl, add salt, brown sugar, margarine and hot water. Let dissolve.
  • Add cold water.
  • Then sprinkle dry yeast on top and let bubble for 5 minutes.
  • Add flour. Stir together until soft. You may need to add a little more flour until it is soft. (NOTE: This is a very soft and semi-sticky dough.) Knead the dough for a few minutes. Let rise for approximately 1½ hours.
  • Punch down dough and divide into 5 loaves.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together.
  • Roll out dough (on a well-floured surface) to the width of your bread pan (a regular size bread pan). Spray with water so cinnamon and sugar mixture stick better. Add ¾ cup of cinnamon/sugar mix to your dough.
  • Roll dough up and drop into greased bread pan. Let rise for 20 minutes.
  • Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
