Grandma B's Cinnamon Bread

Could Stellas love of cinnamon rolls be genetic???

Posted by Nancy for Grandma B.  This is Grandma Lizette Berlin's recipe that she taught to Grandma Betty Berlin.  It makes 8 loaves and was a treat to Nancy, Greg, Eric, Jill, Jay, Kathy and Carl on Fridays as we grew up.

2 c warm water
3 pkg dry yeast (Red Star not Quick)
2 Tbsp sugar
5 c warm water.
1 c oil (Lizette used bacon drippings or lard in pre-Cholesterol days)
1 c sugar
1 rounded Tbsp salt
10-14c flour 

Mix yeast water and sugar while you gather the other ingredients.  The add 5 c water, oil, sugar and salt and stir until dissolved.  Add flour 1 cup at a time, until it "feels right" (smooth and elastic).  Knead dough 2-3 minutes.  Cover and rest in a warm place until doubled.   Uncover and knead for 2-4 minutes again.  Rise again until doubled, about and hour.  Divide into eight pieces and flatten dough, sprinkle with  a  mixture of cinnamon and sugar, roll and shape into bread, coffee cake or cut into rolls.  Top the bread with cinnamon and suger.  Bake at 350F "until it is done."
