  • STIR yeast with 1 tbsp sugar and warm milk in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Set aside until slightly frothy, about 10 min. Combine flour with salt in a medium bowl.

Dust dough with a little more flour and roll into a 9 x 12-in. rectangle. Beat egg and brush over surface of rectangle. Generously sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Roll up rectangle into a log, starting from a short edge. Place log, seam-side down, in a greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2-in. metal loaf pan.
