6 3/4 to 7 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 pkgs active dry yeast
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 tsps salt
In large bowl, combine 3 cups flour and the yeast. In a saucepan heat milk, sugar, butter, and salt just until warm (115 degrees to 120 degrees) and butter is almost melted; stir CONSTANTLY. Add to flour mixture; then add eggs. Beat at low speed for 1/2 minute, scraping bowl.
Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in as much flour as you can mix in with a spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic(6 to 8 minutes total). Shape into a ball. Place in lightly greased bowl; turn
once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size(about 1 1/4 hours). Punch down, divide in half. Roll each half into a 15x7 inch rectangle. Brush entire surface lightly with water.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Sprinkle half the mixture over each rectangle. Starting with the narrow end roll up; seal ends and edges(use a tad bit of water or just pinch). Place sealed edges down in greased loaf pans(we use a cookie sheet because ours end up pretty big). Let rise until double in size(35-40 minutes). Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Cover with foil the last 15 minutes to prevent over browning. Then let cool and enjoy!!
