Kamut® Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Kamut® Cinnamon Swirl Bread

 

This cinnamon swirl bread is one of the best loaves of bread on earth to make into French toast. For our pastry chef, It is a longtime family tradition to serve this New Years morning to her family. It is rich with whole grain and such a moist delicious bread. We think your family will love it as well. 

What is Kamut?

Isn't Khorasan wheat the same thing as Kamut?  One of the biggest misconceptions about Khorasan wheat is that the name “Kamut” refers to the type of wheat, while in fact, Kamut® is the trademark name of a quality organic, heirloom grain, Khorasan wheat. One thing we love is that Kamut®  wheat is 1/3 longer than regular wheat and high protein. In fact, the protein content of this grain makes it absolutely perfect to bread.  Under the Organic Grains brand, you can always trust that the Kamut® wheat we carry will always be grown certified organic, will always be non-GMO, and will never be altered or modified.  

The Kitchen Mixer That’s Built For Life

For this bread, and all bread dough on our site, we use the Wondermix.  There are several mixers on the market that will work great if you are making cookies or brownies, but bread dough is a totally different story. We have tested different mixers and ultimately the WonderMix is the best for bread dough. Other mixers start to struggle or do not mix the bread dough effectively. However, the WonderMix can take whole grain flours and mix them beautifully into a smooth consistent bread dough. If you want to mix dough for 1 loaf or 8 loaves of whole wheat bread you won’t have to worry about hurting your mixer, it's built to take it.
