Incredibly delicious, and even better toasted.
Servings: 1 loafPrep Time: 2 hours Cook Time: 25 minutes
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon maple extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
In a large bowl, combine milk, syrup, butter, yeast, sugar, maple extract, cinnamon, and egg. Let sit five minutes. Add salt and begin stirring in flour gradually with a heavy spoon until dough becomes too stiff to continue stirring easily. Add a little more flour and begin kneading. The amount of flour is approximate–your mileage may vary! Continue adding flour and kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let dough rise in a greased, covered bowl until doubled. (Usually, 30-60 minutes.)
Uncover bowl; sprinkle in a little more flour and knead again before shaping dough into a loaf. Place in a greased loaf pan and cover with greased wax paper or a damp towel. Let rise until loaf is tall and beautiful and maple-icious! (About an hour, depending on the temperature in your kitchen.)
Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven. During the last five minutes of baking, if you like, you can take it out, brush it with a mixture of 1/4 cup water and a dash of maple extract, then sprinkle sugar on top before returning to the oven for the final few minutes of baking.
