Cinnamon Knots

I wanted a yeast bread recipe that doesn't take too long to bake in the oven. Many of my go to ones take an hour which is just too long to have the heat on for in the summer. I found this one which only takes 10 min to bake. They turned out dangerously delicious.

  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1 c milk
  • 2 T yeast
  • 2 T maple syrup (if you don't have any, can substitute sugar/honey)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 egg
  • ~3 c flour
  • dip: 1/4 c butter, 1/2 c sugar, 3 t cinnamon
  1. Heat the butter in a small pan. When almost melted, add milk. Stir until it reaches 100-110 F. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine yeast and syrup. Pour in butter mixture.
  3. Add salt and egg.
  4. Add 2.5 c flour. Add flour until dough doesn't stick to sides of bowl. Knead for 5 minutes.
  5. Divide into 12 pieces.
  6. Melt butter in shallow bowl. Combine sugar and cinnamon in separate bowl (I used a pie plate).
  7. Roll each piece into 8" long rope. Dip in butter, then in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Tie into a knot. Finish by joining two ends and flip over. Place all 12 knots onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Let rest for 10 min.
  9. Bake at 400F for 9-12 min.
  10. Let cool and enjoy warm!
