The day before:

MIX the sponge ingredients in a bowl, cover overnight.

Final dough:

COMBINE all ingredients (including the sponge) in a standing mixer with dough hook.

MIX for five minutes on a low speed, then five minutes on a medium-high speed.

MOVE dough to oiled bowl and cover with plastic for one hour.

MOVE to floured surface, and roll into a rectangle (approximately 7”x16”), mist lightly with water, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and mist again.

ROLL tightly, the long way, for a 7-inch-long cylinder.

PLACE in a well-greased, large bread pan.

PROOF until the dough domes slightly above the rim of the pan (about 1.5 hours).

BRUSH with egg yolk, and make a few shallow cuts with a sharp knife.

BAKE 350 degree F for 42 minutes.


Wright noted that all of the university’s bread recipes are in kilograms, so a decent kitchen scale is in order. He says he scaled down this recipe to make just one loaf. “I’ve never tried making this small of a batch, but I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work.”

    Wow, those are some really exact measurements, I think it’s my first time seeing a recipe so accurate. But I love the concise style and directions.
