Cinnamon Burst Bread!

This is really fun bread.  It is similar to if not  exactly like the bread Great Harvest sells.  I adjusted the recipe to make two loaves as it made six and even as delicious as this bread is, that is far too many!
The cinnamon chips are not the kind Hersheys makes; they will not work.  These were purchased at Orson Gygi's in Salt Lake City.  If you look them up online, you may make your purchases and have them shipped to you.  Gygi's is the store I purchase my dipping chocolate from as well.  They sell many great products for less than your average kitchen store.

Cinnamon Burst Bread

1 & 1/2 Tblsp. yeast
1/4 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 & 3/4 plus 1/8 C. warm water (Sorry about the conversion here, I suck at math!)
2 & 1/4 tsp. salt
1 & 1/2 Tblsp. oil
1 & 1/4 C. cinnamon bits
6 C. flour

Combine 2 C. of the flour, yeast, and sugar.  Add water, eggs, and oil.  Beat well.  Stir in salt, cinnamon bits and 4 more cups of flour.  Stir and knead until good consistency.  Place in a greased bowl and let rise for one hour.  Divide and shape into two round loaves.  Let rise for an hour.  Bake @ 375* for 25 minutes.

Soooo good!
