This recipe has earned the goodfibes™ seal indicating it is a good source of fiber. This bread is made with white whole wheat flour.


1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
2 envelopes Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
1/2 cup warm milk (100° to 110°F)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Mazola® Vegetable Plus! Oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® 100% Pure Vanilla Extract
2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup dried cranberries, divided

Cinnamon Filling:
1/4 cup butter, very soft
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Nutmeg 
 
Additional melted butter (optional)



Directions
Combine 1/2 cup warm water and yeast in large mixer bowl; stir until dissolved. Add 1/2 cup warm water, milk, brown sugar, oil, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and 2 cups flour. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in 2/3 cup cranberries and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 7 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Punch dough down. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to a 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with softened butter, Cinnamon Filling and remaining dried cranberries. Beginning at short end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place seam side down in two greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center reads 190°F. Brush tops with melted butter, if desired. Remove to wire rack to cool.

Cinnamon Filling: Combine brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl.
