Cinnamon Roll Bread


A girlfriend of mine recently had her third child. Her third boy for that matter! She sure is the queen of that house!  In addition to a little gift for their latest addition I also wanted to take them something to enjoy. I didn’t have a ton of prep time, but I had been wanting to try this Cinnamon Roll Bread, so I gave it a shot. To be honest, I did not get a chance to personally sample this one, so I had to base it on the opinions of her sons. Apparently it was devoured rather quickly and their only request was ‘more cinnamon’! So should you desire, feel free to up the swirl ingredients! I wouldn’t be opposed to serving this for breakfast with a cup of coffee…Mmm!



Here’s the recipe thanks to Center Cut Cook:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg – room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk – I used 1%
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream


  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • Pre-heat our oven to 350 degrees and prepare a bread pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray or lightly greasing it with butter.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • In a small bowl combine egg, milk, vanilla extract and yogurt or sour cream.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir to combine. You can use a large wooden spoon for this if you wish, no mixer is required.
  • In a small bowl combine swirl ingredients together – 1/3 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 2 tablespoons water.
  • Use a tablespoon to drop spoonfuls of this mixture over the bread, then use a knife to make swirl designs to incorporate the cinnamon mixture into the bread.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and transfer it to a cooling rack to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze ingredients by combining 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon milk.
  • Remove the bread from the pan and allow it to continue cooling completely.
  • When the bread has completely cooled, pour the glaze over the top and serve. Enjoy!
