Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This has been on my list of "to try" for a while now...apparently since April when Terra posted it on her blog! We decided to have breakfast for dinner so I made this bread to have french toast with. We very rarely have a morning where we are all home so we don't get big, delicious breakfasts very often!

It was pretty simple to put together considering you use a bread machine...although my dough rised right out of the pan and well into the window, thankfully I wasn't baking it in there!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread-shared from Barefoot ConTerra
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter, softened,cubed
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
5 cups bread flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast

1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix together for filling.

Glaze:(which I won't be doing)
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

In bread machine pan, put in ingredients according to machine's directions. Set to dough and press start. Check dough about 5 mins in to make sure you don't need extra flour or water.

Once dough is done, turn dough out onto floured surface and divide in half. Roll one half out into a 10x8 rectangle.(I admit, I did not measure it!) Spread half of the mixture over the dough and roll up jelly roll style, seal ends and place seam side down in greased loaf pan. Repeat with second piece of dough. Cover and let rise 1 hr or until doubled in size.

Place in 350 degree oven for 25 mins. Cover with foil and bake for 5-10 mins more or until golden brown.

Mix glaze ingredients together and drizzle over cooled loaves.
**This bread was light and delicious!! We made it into french toast and it was mighty tasty! The boys both loved it!


  1. Great idea! I love making french toast with banana bread!

  2. Oh me oh my. This is going on the top of the to-make pile.
