Step 1:

In a large bowl, add all-purpose flour and salt. Whisk them together. Next, add sugar, and active dry yeast, and combine.

Step 2:

Combine the wet ingredients. Add lukewarm milk, melted butter, and beaten eggs to a medium-sized bowl. Mix them all.

Step 3:

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients in two batches. Mix with a spatula after each set until almost combined.

Step 4:

Start kneading the dough using your hands until it pulls away from the edges of the bowl for about 1 minute. If the dough is too wet, add some extra flour but if it’s too dry add more lukewarm milk. The dough should be soft and a bit sticky.

Step 5:

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a tea towel. Let it rinse in a warm place until it doubles in size for about 1 1/2 hours.

Step 6:

For the filling, combine the softened butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl until creamy.

Step 7:

Assemble the bread. Sprinkle some flour onto your working surface. Roll the dough to a rectangle of about 20×14 inches. Spread the butter and cinnamon mixture evenly using a spatula, then cut into 6 long strips.

Step 8:

Stack three strips on each other to get 2 stacks of three strips.  Next, cut each stack into 4 squares.  Transfer them into a 4,5 x 9-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper and greased. Once done, spread apart every layer using your hands.

Step 9:

Cover it with a tea towel and let it rise at room temperature for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, brush the top of the bread with beaten egg and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Bake for about 30-35 minutes. After 20 minutes, cover the top with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
