Cinnamon Swirl Bread is perfectly sweet and glorious straight from the oven! Use the leftovers for French toast this weekend!
Sometimes I really, REALLY want a cinnamon roll. I mean honestly – is there anything better than a hot cinnamon roll dripping with icing? No my friends. There is not.
Of course, other times I’m craving that warm cinnamony taste without the jaw-locking sweetness of a cinnamon roll and that is when my Cinnamon Swirl Bread fits the bill perfectly. Delicious cinnamon flavor with a fragrance that permeates the entire house and systematically makes every. single. person. HAPPY. That’s the power of cinnamon. Oh yeah, and a little bit of sugar too, of course ;)
This bread is simply divine fresh from the oven. And if you can’t get through a whole loaf in one sitting – try it toasted with a little butter the next day and then use the rest for french toast this weekend.
You may need to make two loaves to get it to last that long. I did :)
I find bread-making to be such a peaceful and rewarding endeavor. A little bit of work followed with some rise time. A little more work and then a little more rising. Throw it in the oven and enjoy the glorious fragrance and then it’s time to eat! Cinnamon Swirl Bread is made much like a giant cinnamon roll. Make up the dough and let it rise the first time. Roll it out and slather on a wee bit of butter and some cinnamon and sugar.
Next roll it up just like you’re making cinnamon rolls but instead of cutting the roll into slices, you just slip it into a loaf pan – easy peasy!
I love how this bread can be enjoyed day after day and in so many different ways. Reece thinks a slice of Cinnamon Swirl Bread is the perfect afternoon snack and I can attest to it’s perfection for a midnight snack. Perfectly sweet and full of cinnamon flavor, this bread is a must-make in our home.
