Making homemade bread from scratch is a fabulous idea because you can make it the way you want by tweaking the recipe and add different flavors or ingredients to change it up. IN this recipe, what would be interesting is to add other spice powders like ginger powder, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice etc. Adding more spices will give this bread a bold flavor rather than just adding cinnamon. During holidays you can add candied fruit like cranberries or raisins soaked in wine or even nuts like pecans or blanched almonds will make the bread taste even more delicious. Adding chocolate chips is not a bad idea either. Go for a healthier option like dark chocolate chips for instance to up the nutrition. You can also add a handful of desiccated coconut to the batter for a more vibrant flavor. Coconut is not only wholesome but also gives this bread a rich nutty texture. You could also add cream cheese glaze or lemon glaze for an edgy taste while serving this bread. You can also use pumpkin puree or apple chunks in the batter.

Be sure to use fresh cinnamon in this recipe to get a stronger and better aroma. Remember that using fresh spices in recipes will help you achieve the best results. Do not use the cinnamon powder that has been lying on your kitchen shelf for a long time. Spices manage to lose their aroma with time due to their small shelf life. The answer to getting a homemade bread right is by combining all the ingredients until they are well blended. The dough has to be at the proper consistency which is not too dry or too sticky. The best way of getting a good dough texture is by adding the wet ingredients slowly in several batches and keeping a check on it. Keep in mind that if you want to use hands for blending, proper kneading is important for good textured dough. One way of doing this is by using your knuckles to gently punch the dough and roll it between the heels of your palms.
