Instructions
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer add the dough ingredients.
  2. Mix to form a dough then knead for about 10 minutes.
  3. Cover and let the dough rise for one hour in a warm place until nearly doubled in size.
  4. Grease a loaf pan.
  5. After the dough has risen, roll out into a rectangle.
  6. Cut in 3 pieces lengthwise. You’ll have 3 long strips of dough.
  7. Spread jam on the strips and sprinkle cinnamon on top of the jam.
  8. Place one strip on top of the other, jam facing up, then twist.
  9. Place in the loaf pan and let it rise for half an hour in a warm place. It won’t quite double in size.
  10. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  11. Mix egg white with 1 tbsp water and brush over loaf.
  12. Bake for 25 minutes to start.
  13. While the loaf begins to bake, make the streusel topping.
  14. In a medium sized bowl, mix together butter, sugars, flour and cinnamon mashing them with a fork until well combined and crumbly.
  15. After the bread has baked for 30 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle with topping.
  16. Bake for another 20 minutes.
  17. Loaf will bake for about 50 minutes total.
  18. You’ll know it’s ready when you gently tap on the center of the loaf and it feels firm not doughy and squishy. If it feels really squishy it’s not baked all the way through. Add 5 more minutes until the center is firm but not hard.
  19. Let it cool for 20 minutes in the baking pan on a wire cooling rack.
  20. You can remove it from the pan to serve or you can cut it in the pan and put it directly on plates.
Recipe Notes

You can use any jam for this recipe. Here is the link to a recipe I like to use: http://www.food.com/recipe/strawberry-rhubarb-jam-107983

I have taken this bread out of the pan to cut and serve but as you can imagine, the sweet streusel can be messy! You can cut and serve directly from the loaf pan. It’ll still be crummy but will save you at least a little cleanup.
