To me, Craftster is about sharing both successes and failures at trying new crafts and projects, encouraging others and getting encouragement at the same time.

Bread making is one of those projects that I've had recent success and failure with. About a year ago, I tried making cinnamon swirl bread. It looked good in the pan, but all of the cinnamon filling seeped though and hardened on the bottom of the bread pan, forming a sugary, gluey rock holding my bread to the pan.

Flash forward to last week, when I needed a last minute item to take to a morning party. I couldn't get cinnamon bread out of my head, and finally ended up giving it another try. To my relief, this time I was successful.

My main inspirations were these recipes from The Pioneer Woman and AllRecipes.

I don't have progress shots, but I basically followed dumped the bread dough ingredients in my bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer and let the machine do all of the work making the dough. After the dough was done, I rolled it out on a flour-covered cutting board. I doubled the recipe for the cinnamon filling in the AllRecipes recipe, poured it over the top then rolled it up and placed it seam side down in a greased bread pan.

My best advice is to make sure that the seam on the bottom of the roll is sealed tightly - maybe even rub a bit of water on your fingers to give extra moisture to the dough - if the seam isn't tight, the cinnamon and sugar filling will seep out the bottom and bake into the pan rather than the bread. Also, I let mine cool in the pan too long and it stuck a bit. Next time, I'll take it out of the pan as soon as it comes out of the oven and line the pan with parchment paper for easier cleanup.

The moral of this long, rambling story is: don't be upset if your first attempt at something new isn't successful - crafting and cooking take practice and a bit of luck.
